2021 Fairfax Festival

 

Fairfax Festival 2021: B25-D Mitchell Bomber Homecoming

After a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the 6th annual Fairfax Festival was held at Kaw Point Park on Oct 7, 2021. In addition to the usual live music, beer & wine garden, local food, raffles, lawn game tournament and historical boat rides, we were excited to have the North American B25-D Mitchell Bomber plane at the festival. Festival attendees also had the opportunity to meet the B25-D pilots, as the spirit of Rosie was alive and well at the festival. Special thanks to our sponsors and all those who made this day a celebration of the Fairfax community! We will post highlights and media on this page and our social media channels, so stay tuned.
