The DC State Fair was created to celebrate the best of what our community has to offer, and this year, offering our best means supporting one another in a trying time.

At this point, we’re optimistic about bringing all of you together Sept. 12 and 13, 2020, at Gateway DC in Congress Heights for that celebration, but we must also be realistic. As our mission states, we strive to hold a creative, collaborative, innovative and sustainable event that is accessible and inviting to District residents and visitors alike, but how we do that may look a little different this year.

The DCSF Board of Directors is continuously monitoring the coronavirus crisis and developing alternative ways to celebrate our community and its agricultural, culinary and artistic talents. We hope to see you in September, but our priority is the safety of our community so that we may celebrate D.C.’s incredible talents for years to come.

We will keep you posted as our situation evolves. Connect with us on social media for updates and to engage with board members, past winners and community partners. You may also reach out to us by email, even if it’s just to say hello. We may be physically apart, but we’re all working toward the same goal together. Stay safe!
