The 39th Annual Fairfax Festival
June 11th & 12th, 2016

Welcome to the 39th annual Fairfax Festival, Marin’s premier community celebration. The Fairfax Festival embodies the values that are dear to all Marinites: community, family, social responsibility, sustainability and, of course, a great party.

It kicks off with a traditional Family Film Night this year “Inside Out” – in the Ballfield on Friday night, June 10th 8:00pm. Join us for the parade at 10 AM on Saturday, then enjoy two days of celebrating the good things in life and in Fairfax. This year we are honoring a trio for the Parade Grand Marshal – David Smadbeck, Iseult Jordan and Tera Ferguson. We are also hosting a special event on Saturday evening at the Women’s Club with the unique and wonderful Caroline Casey **EVENT CANECELLED**.

Come hear great local music at three stages, shop for crafts and flea market treasures, enjoy fresh, wholesome food, beer, organic wine tasting, entertain the kids in our expanded children’s area, and ponder social and environmental issues at the Ecofest. Once again we will have US PureWater filtered water stands so you can refill your water containers.

The Festival offers something for everyone who attends. The Festival is put on by a volunteers group of your friends and neighbors. We take special pride in being a 100% volunteer group (no outside promoter needed). So come enjoy our hometown event, and be sure to support your local craftspeople, artists, flea marketers, breweries, and food purveyors.

And a huge THANK YOU to our local sponsors – we couldn’t do it without you!
