Celebrate Fairfax is Northern Virginia’s largest community-wide celebration and will take place June 10-12, 2016 at the Fairfax County Government Center. The 25-acre site was magically filled with fascinating sights and sounds of more than 300 exhibitors, food vendors, and interactive activities. Celebrate Fairfax! showcases live concerts on eight stages, Innovation Health Children’s Avenue, a petting zoo, the Fairfax County Karaoke Championship, carnival rides, and great festival foods. Another fun free activity for kids is the Fairfax Express Trackless Train Ride and nightly fireworks.
Also worth checking out is the Lake Anne Chalk Festival, happening Saturday & Sunday.
The weekend is supposed to be sunny and hot. Cool down at a splash park, water park or pool!
Washington Nationals take on the Phillies with day games on Saturday and Sunday!
