For the first time in its history, Sneaker Con will head outside of NYC next weekend, for its show in Washington DC.

Last week’s NYC event drew 2,000 sneakerheads who were looking to buy, sell, and/or trade gear, or just browse the booths and take in the music.

The DC event, which goes Saturday, April 2 from noon to 7 p.m. at 1333 H Street NE will have 30 vendors present, with sneakers and clothing on display from the past three decades.

Admission is 12 bucks and as always, the event organizers encourage you to wear your best kicks to the event.

The event also has tremendous artwork…which doesn’t impact the show, but it’s worth taking a look at here. You can check out pics from the NYC Sneaker Con event here, from CounterKicks.
