DC State Fair


It might not have a midway or livestock exhibits, but the District boasts its own state fair with plenty of wholesome trappings. The festivitie­s are back in person this weekend after two years of virtual content, and include dozens of contests. Some are traditiona­l — best heirloom tomato, best berry jam or jelly — and some have a decidedly D.C. bent, including best mumbo sauce, best sewn face mask and best tattoo. Beyond the competitio­ns, there are musical performanc­es, a pet parade, line dancing lessons from the D.C. Rawhides, beekeeping and gardening workshops, crafts for children, a sports zone with games, a clothing swap, food trucks, a cocktail garden and a vendor marketplac­e.

When: Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Where: Gateway DC at Saint Elizabeth’s East, 2700 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. SE. dcstatefai­
