The town of Herndon brings together live entertainment (3 different stages), arts and crafts show, a business expo, an entire children’s area of hands-on crafts, food vendors, a fitness expo and a firework display on Saturday night for its 36th annual festival!


Vintage Virginia Wine & Food Festival

If you love food and wine, especially those from Virginia, do not miss out on this annual event at Bull Run Special Events Center.  Celebrating its 35th year, this wine and food festival showcases over 30 Virginia wineries, regional food, popular DC food trucks, live music from local bands, and even activities for kids.


Celebrate Fairfax

June 10-12


Take part in Northern Virginia’s largest annual community-wide celebration dedicated to our own county we live in, Fairfax!

Manassas Wine & Jazz Festival

Looking for something to do this Father’s Day? Head over to the Manassas Museum lawn to take in the sounds of jazz music with Marcus Johnson as the headliner.  Bring your lawn chairs and blankets to listen to the music while sipping and tasting the many different varieties and selections of local wines and food!
