Requires proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for event attendees

All staff and vendors working in the Powerhouse must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Additionally, Powerhouse will follow all local jurisdiction guidance for indoor gatherings at the time of the event. Guidelines may change between the date of contract signature and the event and there will be no exceptions to any rules set forth by DC Government.

Transportation

Powerhouse strongly recommends using valet for any events as parking is extremely limited in the Georgetown neighborhood. We work exclusively with MJ Valet. If transportation is arranged for guests, anything that is larger than a mini-bus will need to drop off guests on M Street. All other transportation can drop guests at the entrance of Powerhouse on Grace Street NW.

Load In

Vendors and clients must use side entrance of Powerhouse for all load ins and load outs. No deliveries may be made through the front door. Vendors may set up their own truck ramp to side loading entrance but must identify it with cones to warn pedestrians of its location. Load in and load can only take place between the hours of 8 am and 10 pm.

Guest Access

Guests will enter through the front door of Powerhouse on Grace Street NW.

Storage

All cases and equipment must be stored inside the venue at all times. There is space in back of house underneath the staircase for storage.
