You’ve all been eagerly awaiting the official announcement–and it’s a twofer!
DC State Fair is happy to announce that we will be joining The Barracks Fall Festival on Saturday, September 22. The festival takes place at 8th Street, Southeast, below Pennsylvania Avenue. Join us for a festive day displaying and celebrating DC residents’ agricultural, culinary, crafty, and artistic talents! More details about our partners, the judging schedule, and educational demonstrations will be announced as we develop them throughout the summer.
In the meantime, most of our contests are open to entries! Head on over to our contest page to find details about DC’s favorite contests, such as Funkiest-Looking Vegetable, Homebrew, and Pie, and our new contests, such as Kids’ Art, Sewing, and Honey! Be sure to read entry guidelines carefully–for example, some contests have safety precautions, some have entry fees, some have entry limits, and some have early deadlines and separate drop-off locations!
We are very excited to see what amazing talent DC will put on display in this year’s contests. We’ll see you at the Fair!
