Fairfax Family

We have some exciting updates to share!


During the past year, Celebrate Fairfax, Inc. (CFI) seized an opportunity to re-envision how we, as a 501c3 nonprofit organization, fulfill our mission to celebrate Fairfax County and its communities. CFI has been a staple in Fairfax County for nearly 40 years. We strive to build a sense of community and help make Fairfax County a great place to live, work and play. 

We’ve achieved our mission in a variety of ways to meet the needs of the continuously evolving Fairfax community – from a small local chili cook-off to a county fair, to music-carnival-fair hybrid festival, and by supporting other nonprofit engagement programs like the World Police and Fire Games Athletes Village.

Similar to many other organizations we are embracing change as we evolve. Along those lines, we will not be hosting the traditional Celebrate Fairfax! Festival at the Fairfax County Government Center. Instead, we will be focusing more broadly on celebrating Fairfax County as a whole, by bringing the heart of the festival into each of the County districts. This approach allows us to focus more intently on our mission and our ability to truly celebrate the 1.1 million citizens of Fairfax County!

We hope you will continue to celebrate Fairfax with us! Below is a list of our upcoming events. Please be sure to check back for more updates soon.
