A Midsummer Night's Green is back in person!


Now in its 21st year, A Midsummer Night's Green has long been the premier summer social event and celebration of the DC metro green building community, annually bringing together 300+ industry professionals and sustainability advocates from across the region to toast the best of the best in local green building. We're thrilled to return in-person this year to the ever-popular Arena Stage for this highly-anticipated reunion event!


The evening will begin with a ceremony honoring the recipients of our 2022 Community Leader Awards, headlined by our keynote speaker, Kim Pexton, LEED Fellow, VP of Sustainability and longtime leader within the USGBC community. The ceremony will include the announcement of our Project Award winners as well as a celebration of the recipients of our individual and organizational awards. It will be followed by a networking reception with drinks and hors d'oeuvres, during which attendees will have the opportunity to vote to determine which project will take home our prestigious People's Choice Award.


Proceeds from the event support USGBC's local education, advocacy and volunteer programs.

USGBC National Capital Region's Community Leader Awards celebrate excellence in high-performance, healthy design and building, environmental stewardship, and community impact, and serve to highlight the green building initiatives of USGBC NCR community projects, businesses and local members. They recognize building owners and project teams for their extra effort to accomplish LEED certification for their buildings, and they honor the people who are working to create better buildings and better lives for all in the DC metro area.
