Our History: The DC State Fair was established by three food and garden bloggers to showcase the talents of the District and engage artistic, agricultural and culinary-minded residents in friendly competition. The first DC State Fair was held on August 28, 2010, as part of the Columbia Heights Day Festival in Ward 1.


The DC State Fair has been held in different neighborhoods across the District. In 2011, it was held at Crafty Bastards in Adams Morgan (Ward 1). In 2012 and 2013, it was held at the Barracks Row Fall Festival (Ward 6). In 2014 and 2015, it was held at Old City Farm and Guild (Ward 2). In 2016, it was held at NoMa Junction at Storey Park (Ward 6). And in 2017 and 2018, it was held at Waterfront Station in Southwest DC (Ward 6), and attracted 15,000+ people.
