If you're looking for an industrial and historic wedding venue with state-of-the-art technology and trendy furniture, then you're in the right place!
Located in Washington, DC, Capital Turnaround offers you a stylish industrial venue to celebrate your wedding. Our property’s historic Navy Yard Car Barn was once the last stop on the city’s red line. Here, streetcars were brought to be serviced and rerouted. The building has since been repurposed and soon-to-be-weds like you can find a versatile and urban space for their city celebrations.
Capital Turnaround contains a number of unique event areas. Our Main Hall is the primary event space with rustic exposed bricks and metallic piping contrast which is ideal for a 100 to 300 guest seated reception. Its stripped-back design offers a unique frame for contemporary events. Additionally, we offer 8 lounge areas that function as bridal and groom suites but also for your guests to relax and mingle.
Our warehouse-style building can be admired most in the converted auditorium with 987 seats. Once the car barn garage, the hall now sets the scene for electrifying entertainment. Here we feature sophisticated LED screens, AV, and top-notch sound and lights.
Events at Capital Turnaround are designed to celebrate life, build community, and create joyful memories. We are currently offering special rates and discounted pricing to accommodate your budget to support you during the current pandemic.

Founder & CEO
In 1997, Eddie Fam began his career in event management as a student at George Mason University where he booked The Roots for one of his first music festivals. In 2000, Eddie signed a local band named SEV to a major record deal with Jimmy Iovine and Geffen Records. This landed them a commercial for Pepsi Blue which aired during the MTV Music Video Awards. In 2001, Fam helped coordinate a fundraising campaign for Coptic Orphans which generated more than $1 million dollars for vulnerable children in Egypt. In 2005, Eddie was selected for Bono’s ONE Campaign to serve as a US Delegate at the G8 Summit to promote the “Commission for Africa”. As Eddie continued to excel in his career, he decided to create his own event production company in 2009 – IMPACT Collective. Humbly starting his business from the inside of a Panera, Eddie began managing several types of events such as weddings, galas, concerts, conferences, corporate, and non-profit fundraisers. Eddie’s greatest passion is serving as the Founder of Meant 2 Live Foundation, an organization that has impacted more than 2,500 impoverished youth in Washington, DC, Virginia, and Zambia, Africa. Fam also launched a ministry called Splendor Productions which utilizes the universal power of music to inspire individuals living in poverty, prisons, and with addictions around the world.
