Fairfax City: A Hometown 4th Celebration
The 55th annual Independence Day parade starts the weekend celebration on July 3rd, stepping off at 10am at 4100 Chain Bridge Road, Fairfax, rain or shine.
The parade loops around downtown Fairfax, along Chain Bridge Road, Main Street, University Drive and Armstrong Street. Among the entries in this year’s parade are nine high school marching bands as well as many large inflatable parade balloons, floats and clowns.
This year the Evening Show takes place on July 4, with music and dancing at 6:30pm at Fairfax High School (3501 Lion Run).
Due to COVID restrictions, no children's activities are being held this year. But a spectacular fireworks display follows the music and dancing, when the sky darkens.
The rain date (for the fireworks only) is July 5.
Items that may puncture the synthetic turf, smoking, alcohol and animals (except service animals) are not permitted on the football field.
