It’s time to celebrate! Thanks to dedicated DC State Fair supporters — including readers like you — our Kickstarter fundraiser reached its goal on August 31. That night, fundraising chair Amelia Showalter sent the following message to contributors:

Kid Power brings delights big and small

DC State Fair executive committee members Ken and Rhea joined the Kid Power Harvest Dinner on August 2. The event, hosted by Fair sponsor Kid Power DC, wrapped up the program’s summer camp season. Family, friends, and community members were invited to enjoy kid-created dance, a poetry slam, and food that they grew and cooked themselves.

Guests feasted on vegetable goulash, fresh-baked kale chips, pesto pasta, chicken, and zucchini bread.
