There’s some good stuff happening in the area this weekend. Here are some fun events for good causes to check out.

Tonight, there is a benefit at Comet Ping Pong to support Transformer, a non-profit visual arts space at 14th and P NW.  There’s a $10 cover and $1 PBRs, featuring an art installation, live music, a DJ set and dancing. 

This Saturday is the 17th Street Festival. It will be taking place on 17th Street between Riggs and P St NW from 2-6 pm. There will be musical performances, vendors, and activities for pets and kids. In conjunction with this festival, there will be a showing of Batman at 8pm at Stead Park (1625 P St NW). Profits from the festival will go towards Ross Elementary.
