Every fall groups from well beyond Ward 6 celebrate the unique, small town flavor of Historic Capitol Hill.
8th St. SE, is closed to traffic and booths of all description line the midway. Meanwhile, on the center stage, you'll see performances you don't want to miss - including the United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon. Of course, Chesty, the Marine Corps Bulldog mascot dressed in his uniform will be walking the midway to meet fair goers and pose with fans.
Up at the corner of 8th and E Street, the Petting Zoo returns - where city kids and their parents can meet farm animals. And towards the corner of 8th and I St, SE, an expanded Truck Touch will include some very unusual vehicles from DC Water.
If you have questions about the festival we are easy to reach at 202-544-3188, Monday-Friday from10:00AM- 6:00PM.

This Thursday is Do More 24! Do More 24 is the local movement powered by United Way of the National Capital Area that provides a simple way to generate excitement and connects donors with the causes they care most about throughout the National Capital Community. Over 700 local Nonprofits are working together this year.
The goal is to inspire the entire DMV to come together for 24 hours to give as much as possible to support the work of public 501c3 nonprofits and raise awareness in the National Capital Community!
Below is a list of Barracks Row participants and partners:
