“The DC Record Fair returns to Penn Social on Sunday, January 29, 2017!

43 record dealers from up and down the East Coast will bring their finest LPs and 45s to Washington, DC’s only record fair. All genres—from dollar bin miracles to much sought after holy grail items—and everything in between. DJ’s and drinks too! Presented by Som Records, The Vinyl District, and DC Soul Recordings.

11AM-Noon $5 Early Bird Admission, $2 from Noon-5PM.”

    I might have to check this out. The record stores in DC are always so picked over and/or overpriced. The good ones are mostly in the suburbs or in smaller cities.

    Awesome. FINALLY bought my husband and I a record player this year (had been collecting records with no way to play them). Looking forward to going to this!

  • trebek

    Is this the 1st year they have done this? If not, has anyone been before? always looking for records for my brother in richmond but the ones in NW tend to skew more rock and/or obscure (for me, at least). If this has more mainstream older records, that’d be great.

      There’s typically an enormous variety, since there are so many different vendors selling their wares. Most sellers tend to specialize to some extent (jazz/blues, soul, hip hop, newish/indie rock, classic rock, etc.) and it really does range from a dollar or three per record up to serious collector prices for rarities.
