Washington Media Fest took place July 29-31, 1983 in Arlington, Virginia.

In 2018, a fan commented: "Washington Media Fest was a one-off convention, whose unfortunate temporal and geographical proximity to better-established conventions like Shore Leave and August Party led to very low attendance. I was in the Dealers Room, and although I did well, the other Dealers took to good-naturedly calling it "ComaCon". We did all manage to have a good time, though." [1]
