The District Improv Festival is Washington, D.C.'s only long-form improv festival. Located in the heart of our nation's capital, District Improv Festival features more than three dozen troupes from across the United States and Canada. The 2019 festival will be announced soon. Past headliners consist of White Women, 3Peat, TJ & Dave, The Boys, DUMMY, and Armando Diaz.
The festival is produced in alliance with Washington Improv Theater and The Unified Scene Theater. The festival consists of four nights of shows and two days of workshops across two theater spaces. District Improv's mission is to support and grow Washington, D.C.’s long-form improv scene and promote awareness of the District as a premier improv community.
