The Fairfax Fall Festival Is Back!
The annual Fairfax Fall Festival has grown by leaps and bounds since its humble beginnings more than four decades ago. The original festival was a small gathering of artisans and purveyors, but over the years, it has expanded to a sprawling market of craft goods, gourmet cooking, live entertainment, and activities for the whole family. This year, more than 400 vendors will pack the Historic District with art, pottery, jewelry, sweets, apparel, and much more.
When and Where
The 43rd annual festival will be held downtown in the city’s Historic District on Saturday, October 12. It will run from 10 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. While vendors will pack up their wares at 5 p.m., there will be an evening concert in the Old Town Square starting at 5:30 p.m. Admission to the festival is free of charge. The festival will be centered around 3999 University Drive, Fairfax, Virginia 22030.
Fun in Fairfax
There will be carnival rides running throughout the day, and children can use their imaginations with special activities like the poetry workshop or live drawing. Three stages will host live entertainment throughout the festival, from a karaoke championship to musicians like Rob Hornfeck, The Main Street Community and, and Bruce in the USA. There will also be an All-American Lumberjack Show, where professionals show off their woodcutting skills with special feats and tricks of the trade.
If you’re looking for lunch or dinner, the food courts have you covered with an appetizing variety of vendors. You can enjoy surf or turf cooking from Bacons BBQ or Sherri’s Crab Cakes, embrace the sweet life with Dolce Vita, or spice things up with Taqueria Garcias. You can also cool down with dessert from Fun Time Ice Cream, Snowie Shaved Ice of Virginia, or A & B Soft Serve Ice Cream. No festival would be complete without funnel cake, so Funnel Fare will be present to serve up the classic fried treat. There will also be several beverage stations to quench your thirst.
