While you may not find a Ferris wheel nor livestock judging nor demolition derby, you can find some local fun at the first ever DC state fair.

You can show off your your homemade pie or pickles, your tastiest tomatoes or your freshly fermented homebrew  – and you might even win a prize.  We’re watching our growing Black Krim tomatoes for a possible winner in the tasty tomato contest.

The fair will be held on August 28th in conjunction with Columbia Heights Day at Tubman Elementary (11th and Irving Streets NW).
