Georgetown Launches ParasolShare

June 16, 2016

Georgetown loves its shoppers. ParasolShare is a new summer pilot program starting June 17 from the Georgetown Business Improvement District (BID) to help visitors “Shop Georgetown, (and) Stay Cool” in the heat and humidity of D.C. summers.


The program, the first of its kind, embraces the ever-growing sharing economy and welcomes visitors to use and ‘share’ a custom-branded nylon parasol as they shop, then return it to a participating location as they leave Georgetown. Close to 50 participating stores, restaurants, galleries and hotels across the commercial district from M Street to Wisconsin Avenue, side streets, and along K Street, are participating. A full list of participating ParasolShare locations can be found here


If you are interested in participating in the program and hosting a parasol pick up/drop off location, please contact Nancy Miyahira at nmiyahira@georgetowndc.com
