2019 DC State Fair

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 09/08/2019
The DC State Fair is a free showcase of the District’s agricultural, culinary and creative talents and a daylong celebration of all things homegrown.
While the DC State Fair is inspired by time-honored state fair traditions—growing and gardening, animal husbandry, and deep-fried foods—it also honors the things that make the District of Columbia unique. This means the DC State Fair holds competitions to find the tastiest mumbo sauce, best honey, and most creative hula hoopers in the city; puts on a Pet Parade instead of a pig race; and works with local businesses and organizations that are committed to helping our community thrive.

The Tenth Annual DC State Fair will be held on Sunday, September 8, 2019 from 11am-7pm.

The event will have a new location at Gateway DC, an innovative and unique state-of-the-art park and pavilion in the heart of St. Elizabeths East Campus. Gateway DC is located at 2700 Martin Luther King, Jr. Avenue SE, Washington, DC 20032.

Plan ahead: pack a reusable water bottle, reusable cutlery and a shopping bag. Help the Fair be more sustainable.
