DC State Fair is an organization in Washington, D.C., that is culturally analogous to state fairs elsewhere in the United States. It is a new organization dedicated to showcasing D.C. residents' talents in baking, cooking, brewing, crafting, gardening and sewing. The first fair was held on August 28, 2010 at a neighborhood festival, Columbia Heights Day, and had 11 competitions. The second Fair was rescheduled for October 1, 2011 due to Hurricane Irene and held at the Crafty Bastards art festival as a cornerstone vendor in the first-ever Crafty Farm area. The third Fair featured 20 contests and was held on September 22, 2012 at community festival Barracks Row Fall Festival.
