A Message Regarding the 2020 Independence Day Celebration

Post Date:05/14/2020 12:00 PM

As we’re sure you’re already aware, COVID-19 has made it vital to limit social contact and avoid large gatherings.  For that reason, the Independence Day Celebration Committee (IDCC) and the City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation (Parks & Rec) Department have made the difficult decision (with the concurrence of the Mayor and the City Council) to cancel the 54th  Annual 2020 City of Fairfax July 4th Celebration. 

We are, however, exploring other ideas and options to recognize our July 4th traditional celebration while fully ensuring the health and safety of our community and the region. 

While we are all disappointed, we hope you understand that we’re taking these steps to keep everyone safe. 

Updates will be provided as they become available through social media, news outlets, etc., as well as the City of Fairfax website.  

If you have questions or comments, please email Mitzi Taylor, the City of Fairfax event and athletic manager.
