Save The Date: 43rd Annual Fairfax Festival

June 13th & 14th, 2020

NEW WEBSITE in development...

Applications are online for vendors. Please check here for the latest info.

Welcome to the 43rd annual Fairfax Festival, Marin’s premier community celebration. The Fairfax Festival embodies the values that are dear to all: community, family, social responsibility, sustainability and, of course, a great party. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS!

It kicks off with a traditional Family Film Night in the Ballfield on Friday night, June 12th 8:00 PM. Join us for the parade at 10 AM on Saturday, then enjoy two days of celebrating the good things in life and in Fairfax.

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 volunteer 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!

The Fairfax Festival 2020–
The Impact of COVID-19

First, we appreciate how stressful this is for each of you. At this point we are moving forward with our planning for the Fairfax Festival. As the time draws closer we will make a final evaluation based on the information and guidelines in place at that time.

Vendors and participants, please continue to complete the application process. We will not be processing any fees/payments until we feel reasonably sure the Festival can be held in June.

Thank you all for your understanding. We wish you and yours the very best. Our hearts are with you during this time.
