We sincerely appreciate your patience and unwavering support as we look for creative ways to navigate through these unprecedented times. Due to ongoing concerns related to COVID-19, and for the health and safety of all involved, we regret to inform you that we will not be producing an event in October 2020.



Festival Information Booths

There is an information booth, located near the flagpoles in front of the Government Center building.  The location of the festival information booth will be indicated on the festival map.

Inova Family Care Center

Located in Inova Children’s Hospital Avenue, the Inova Family Care Center provides an air-conditioned area for nursing moms and parents that need a diaper changing station.  The Inova Family Care Center location will be indicated on the festival map.

Lost and Found

Lost and found will be located in the Festival office of the building’s Conference Center (to the left of the main lobby). If you lose something, please check there or fill out this form. If the item you have lost is not there the first time, check again later. If you find something that needs to be returned to its owner, please drop it off at any Information Booth.


If you need cash, 12 ATMs can be found throughout the event site. Transaction fees will be $3.95 per transaction. ATM locations will be indicated on the festival map.


Hydration is important! Especially when the average temperatures in early June can get pretty high.  Don’t miss out on the one of the most popular booths on-site, Fairfax Water, which provides glasses of FREE water. Stop by their water bar located on Main Street across from the AT&T Community Village.


Air-conditioned restrooms are located inside the Fairfax County Government Center building. Porta-potties are located at the back of the Carnival and behind the exhibit area on Yellow Gate Drive.  There are also a couple of porta-potties located in the KidWay MidWay and in the DockDogs area. All restroom locations will be indicated on the festival map.

Recycling Station

There is a main recycling station in the Food Court.  Its location is indicated on the festival map. Bottle recycling is available at that station and also at each beer booth location.
