The City of Fairfax comes alive for their annual Independence Day Celebration! Head into downtown and kick off July 4, 2019, with a parade, followed by plenty of family- and kid-friendly activities.

The parade has developed into the largest in the Commonwealth of Virginia and has all the requisite ingredients for the 4th of July, including marching bands, floats, Shriners’ little cars and big motorcycles, old fire engines, clowns, and more. The parade is followed by an Old-Fashioned Fireman’s Day, in which area fire companies compete. Learn more here, including the parade route, parking, and directions.
