Venue Announcement: Half Street Fairgrounds

Fairgrounds 6

We are Proud to Announce our Venue for the 2016 DMV Cornhole & Beer Fest! It will be held on the Saturday of Father’s Day Weekend, June 18th at the Half Street Fairgrounds Next to Nationals Park in Washington, DC!

The Fairgrounds was Rated Best Outdoor Venue in Washington, DC by Washington City Paper!

From the Fairgrounds Website:
“Fairgrounds has evolved into one of the most sought out attractions in Washington, D.C. For six months out of the year, locals and visitors enjoy free admission, live bands on the Bayou sounds stage, ESPN broadcasting, Cornhole, Fast Pitch, the Bullpen bar, food trucks and dogs hot off the grill. The massive outdoor venue encapsulated by shipping containers opens its gates two hours before every Washington Nationals home game to baseball fans, traveling tourists, families and friends.”

“…The Fairgrounds Comfortably Accommodates D.C.’S Growing Investment in our Now-Winning Home Team. But, its Pop-Up Celebrations, Concerts, and Sunday Family Days Make it Something A Little More Than A Place for Jocks to Drink.”
Alexis Hauk Washington City Paper
