Three Days of Celebration in Fairfax

Jun 04, 2014 03:58AM

Celebrate Fairfax, Northern Virginia’s largest community-wide celebration, arrives June 6 to 8, to the Fairfax County Government Center. Presented by Celebrate Fairfax, Inc., the annual festival hosts tens of thousands of visitors during the three-day run.

The 25-acre site is magically filled with fascinating sights and sounds of more than 300 exhibitors, food vendors, crafters and interactive activities. Celebrate Fairfax showcases live concerts on eight stages, ExxonMobil Children’s Avenue, a petting zoo, the Fairfax County Karaoke Championship, carnival rides and great festival foods. Another fun activity for kids is the Inova Train Ride. 

Nightly fireworks, presented by Leidos, are a highlight of the festival, and one of many great family programs. This year’s Bud Light Main Stage features top national headline performers The All American Rejects, Cheap Trick and The Hunts—included in the price of admission.

A recipient of one of the International Festivals and Events Association’s top honors, Celebrate Fairfax was named a Bronze Pinnacle Award winner in 2005 for its long-time quality and success. The festival was also a 2006 honoree as one of the Top 20 events in the southeastern United States.
