Are you ready to ‘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.

The 34th annual Celebrate Fairfax event starts on June 5 and concludes on June 7. As I noted last year, it’s been a few years since I’ve been able to go (June is such a busy month isn’t it?), but am aiming to go one of these years. In earlier years there has been dog shows, bands, arts and crafts, dancing, light shows, tech and lots of hands-on fun for the kids.

Every year the festival draws in some big names for performances. This year’s headliners scheduled to be on the Bud Light Main Stage are: 

  • KONGOS (Fri. 8 p.m.)
  • 3 Doors Down  (Sat. 8 p.m.)
  • The Amish Outlaws (Sun. 4:30 p.m.)

There are also several other stages. Check out the official web page to see the various stages and schedules. There will be fireworks on Friday night at 9:30 p.m.

Tickets are currently on sale. The "earliest" bird specials have passed, however, there is still an early bird special running through May 30. Fees vary depending on how and where you buy the tickets, so check the pricing page of the festival for more details.
