About District Bliss


Our Vendor Socials

Sara Alepin + Sarah Campbell joined forces to form the raddest, most hip networking events across the USA!

When Sarah + Sara met, they hit it off right away. While launching their personal endeavors, they realized very quickly, starting a business was not easy and they wanted to find a supportive group of piers to share this journey with. S+S began attending a variety of networking events; they felt like most events were too big, too small, and often no one seemed interested in talking to them. The ladies came to the conclusion that what they were looking for just didn’t exist.

So, S+S decided to host their own events where they could compile all of things they were looking for. Soon, the ideas started to roll in. After many long nights sampling wines and early morning meetings at local coffee shops: District Bliss was born.

Celebrate all of your hard work and take a night off!

The District Bliss events have received awesome feedback! We have grown to be so much more than we could have imagined; the District Bliss team is so thankful for all of the support we’ve received and can’t wait to host you at an upcoming event!

Sara Alepin | Co-Founder, Owner of District Bliss

Sara, Alepin, Hartenstine,District Bliss, Community, Artist, Photographer, Photos from the HartySara is a lover of lattes, spontaneity, popcorn & laughing loudly. She’s a go-getter with a background in Art Education. After leaving the public school sector, she began to focus on her photography business, Photos from the Harty. Hoping to create a community of supportive and like-minded creatives, entrepreneurs, and artists, Sara co-founded District Bliss. She has – and continues to be – amazed at how many wonderful, talented people have joined the DB chapters across the USA!

When she is not working, she’s reading, traveling, enjoying a glass of earthy red wine, spending time outdoors with her puppy, or hanging with her friends and family.

Co-founded by two Sara(h)s who wanted to create a strong community of support

Sarah Campbell is a DIYer who loves finding off-the-beaten-track coffee shops, sweets, and a nice gin and sour. After co-founding DB and moving to New York to expand, Sarah’s wedding planning business, Pollyanna Events, began to explode!

While she no longer has time to dedicate to hosting District Bliss events, Sarah remains a huge supporter and we couldn’t be happier that she has become so successful!

Our Goal

We want to make people happy and provide a stress-free environment!

Our goal is to host an event that can accommodate an intimate group of people who can to grab a cocktail, casually mingle with and meet other rad people, while having a good time.

For each social, we work with a select group of Featured Vendors and one Premier Vendor to curate a unique event. We love to introduce our guests to small businesses and creatives.

Where & When

Keep an eye out – we try to announce our events 1-2 months in advance on social media, our blog, and our calendar of events.

We currently host socials in DC, VA, LA & NYC. We’re always expanding, so keep your eyes out if we haven’t made it to your area yet!

We host tons of Vendors Socials. Schedule permitting, we host a variety of DIY Workshops at West Elm every second Sunday (only in DC)

Because we want our events to be intimate, our ticket sales limited.

What You’ll Gain

Besides being more awesome, what will you gain after attending one of our socials? Guests will take home some fun pictures, treats, gifts, quality connections, and lots of inspiration!

We think everyone should be celebrated for their hard work, so join us at one of our events and let’s toast to a great time!
