Due to the statewide Stay at Home order effective until June 10th, and the growing concerns over the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are forced to consider other options and to postpone our summer event. This decision was made with the health and safety of the Fairfax County residents, our attendees, partners, volunteers, and staff in mind.  The specific date(s) will be released in the coming weeks, but we are currently targeting October 2020.  

The information below is subject to change, and will be updated as the event gets closer. Thank you for your understanding!
