Fairfax City is home to a number of historic sites including the Ratcliffe-Allison Pozer House and the Fairfax Museum and Visitor Center, but those aren’t the only draws to the city. There’s no shortage of events to participate in! Throughout the year, there’s always something to behold to include Rock the Block concerts, a Fall Festival, the largest Independence Day Celebration in Northern Virginia, a Holiday Window Decorating contest and a Small Business Saturday celebration.
Fairfax City is also home to George Mason University, which is less than a mile away from our historic Old Town and Main Street. In our historic Old Town, you can experience our city like a local with its brick sidewalks and charming architecture. No visit is complete without taking a stroll through this district.
So whether you’re here for a day or an extended stay, we invite you to explore Fairfax City’s unique and unforgettable experiences.
