At first, it looks like a quaint town fair, but as you get closer you see–acrobats swinging from the trees? Listen, and you can hear the sounds of a capella, or a drum beat or smell a mix of delicious foods.
Then you’re there, in the mix of things at the Barracks Row Fall Festival. You can practically see the trees glowing orange and feel the chill in the air as you celebrate fall in one of the most historic neighborhoods in the city.
Join us on 8th Street, SE, between E and I Streets, one block south of the Eastern Market Metro, as we celebrate fall at the 15th annual Barracks Row Fall Festival on September 26. With special guests from The Potomac Fiber Arts Guild, the DC Area Drone User Group, the Washington Nationals Nat Mobile and Mentalist Max Major, there really is something for everyone.
Fashion trucks join food trucks, artists, craftsmen, restaurants, schools, and local Capitol Hill organizations to create the midway. Feel like chilling with fluffy friends? A petting zoo with piglets, llamas and lambs will be set up on the corner of 8th and E.
Meanwhile, don’t miss out on the things you can’t find anywhere else. At the Military Culinary Competition, top military chefs will face off in a timed challenge. Kennedy Center violinist Glen Donnellan has strung a baseball bat and will play it, and let you too, before heading to the second-to-last home game of the Nationals, just blocks away.
So say goodbye to the summer humidity (but no promises), and hello to the Barracks Row Fall Festival. We can’t wait to see you there. www.barracksrow.org
