Capital Audiofest (CAF) 2019 Show Report


  Capital Audiofest (CAF), launched in 2010 as a very casual show, has evolved into a well-organized and well-attended event. CAF is recognized as a fun, friendly and family-oriented show where you often see parents with children strolling from room to room listening to music, auditioning gear, and browsing the multiple bins of vinyl records, CDs and accessories. During the evenings they feature live music within the bar and special live performers in the Theater. Adding to the fun local distillers offer tasting of their alcoholic beverages. CAF takes place from November 1st through 3rd at the Hilton Washington DC / Rockville Hotel & Executive Meeting Center.

The camaraderie, the "vibe," the diversity, the quality of the exhibits – at ALL PRICE POINTS, the after-hours events, the music, it's just a spectacularly fun three-days of friendship, sound, and music.
