The Economic Development Office, in partnership with the Economic Development Authority, is committed to promoting and growing our local business community. As part of our commitment to help create strong businesses, the EDO administers a number of ribbon cutting ceremonies, which provide for a great opportunity to introduce new businesses to the City, its residents, and visitors! We encourage all new businesses to schedule celebrations with us, to invite family and friends, and to alert local media.
Fairfax City ribbon cutting celebrations are available to Fairfax City businesses only. To request a ribbon cutting coordinated by the Economic Development Office, please complete the online request form. Fields marked with an asterisk are required.
Upon receipt of your request, EDO staff will contact you regarding the details of your ribbon cutting date and time. Your ribbon cutting is not scheduled until you receive a confirmation email from the EDO. If confirmation is not received, please contact us at EconomicDevelopment@fairfaxva.gov.
Note: If your preferred date/time is unavailable (absence of EDO staff, elected officials, or scheduling conflict) the EDO will work with you to identify an alternate time. Please do not publicize your ribbon cutting event until it is confirmed by City staff.
