Hill Happenings
Tracking the Hill's briefings, receptions, workshops, and more.



Hill Happenings was created to help Congressional interns, staffers, and other stakeholders find events in and around the Capitol Complex. The events are aggregated from many sources and curated to focus on policy, career, and networking events. It features liberal, conservative, bipartisan, and nonpartisan events. Hill Happenings was inspired by Capitol Grapevine, an excellent website which unfortunatly shut down in September 2017.
