About the Fairgrounds
Open daily May 1st through October 3rd, Fairgrounds the "hub" area which comprises 10 retail containers, food trucks, bars and a farmers market. On game days and weekends, the whole block-long venue will open at 11:30 am and stay open until 2 hours after the game ends. On non-game days, Fairgrounds will stay open through happy hour/dinner or the end of any event.
Ideally located at Half & M Streets, SE, on the large block just north of Nationals Park and directly across the street from the Navy Yard Metro station entrance, Fairgrounds is part of the Capitol Riverfront, DC's new mixed-use community and neighborhood on the water.
Fairgrounds will serve customers coming to the ballpark for games; for a lunch, happy hour and dinner spot seven days a week; and as a unique shopping destination for the many office workers, residents and visitors to the neighborhood.
Weekend art markets, food and music festivals, including concerts, fundraisers, art fairs, Truckeroos, and an ESPN container broadcasting live, will augment the eighty-two scheduled baseball games to offer an exciting and eclectic center of activity in the Southeast Waterfront neighborhood and a regional destination as a fun, creative and always-interesting outdoor party. http://www.fairgroundsdc.com
