Celebrate Fairfax: Each year Fairfax County puts on several great events, a popular one is “Celebrate Fairfax”. Fun for all ages, Celebrate Fairfax has the typical “carnival” attractions, such as rides and food, but it also offers several performances and special presentations. And a whole lot more. It runs for 3 days, Friday to Sunday, starting June 5. 2015 marks its 34th year. More details on this one in my post from last week.
The Fairfax County 4-H Fair and Frying Pan Farm Park Show will run from July 30 to Aug. 1, 2015. This annual fair takes showcases all kinds of entertainment, including animal shows,
Arlington County Fair will run from Aug. 5 to Aug. 9, 2015. Last year the admission to this fair was free and there was also a shuttle service priced at $2 per adult round trip (children under 12 and seniors were free). The fun usually includes entertainment, family-oriented events, sports, carnival rides, music, dancing and more, both indoor and outdoor events. The fair takes place at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center, located at 3501 South Second St., in Arlington.
While agriculture in the region has declined as the growth continues to move west from the District, but the history and popularity of this event lives on.
If you're looking for some family fun as the summer passes the mid-way point and begins to wind down, these are some great events in Northern Virginia to consider.
