Winning teams move up through brackets until the championship playoff. Cintas’ team won the 2018 Fairfax Festival Lawn Game Tourney and they will proudly display the traveling FIA Tourney Trophy at their business as well as access to all bragging rights that go with this until the next tourney! 

Sign-Up for the Lawn Game Tournament will be Sept 1-30.

Live Music

The Zeros will be taking the stage at this year’s festival.

The Zeros

The Zeros represent Kansas City’s first “hurricane” of new wave and 1980’s music. The Zeros offer the most authentic and dedicated 80’s and new wave tribute in the Midwest complete with an electrifying and energetic stage show that is a must-see. They combine a state-of-the-art sound and light show with equally impressive musical prowess to form their unique sound and presence. The Zeros perform only the most popular songs from the 80’s and thankfully do not perform any “hair band” music. Members of The Zeros Band include Brad Gaddy, Shawn Poores, and Larry Groce.
