100th Anniversary Celebration

 

Make plans now as we will be
Celebrating 100 years of Fairfax all year long!

The District was formed in 1922 on a 1,232 acre Industrial Park. In 1939, Guy Stanley and the Union Pacific Railroad Company began actively developing the Fairfax District and soon eight more industries joined. Through the years, the District has grown to house more than 130 companies. As we are Celebrating 100 years of Fairfax, we will be highlighting fun facts that occurred in the District.

Be a part of Celebrating 100 Years of Fairfax!

We will be celebrating all year long! In order to commemorate this momentous event, there are a few of the multitude of celebratory activities planned. Here is a small list of the activities already scheduled for this year:

  • June 9th from 3 – 5PM: Fairfax Tower Signage Ribbon Cutting Ceremony & Happy Hour: To help celebrate our new Fairfax towers in the district, we will have a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Fairfax Tower located at Funston Rd & 7th St. We will also have a tent, table, chairs, live music, appetizers, beer and wine.
