FIA has luncheons, special events, fundraisers, Happy Hours and a Fairfax Festival each year. Luncheons typically fall on the second Thursday of the month except July, October and December where we do not have a luncheon. Average attendance is 80 and they are usually held at a business in our district with a variety of speakers and topics. In October we have our annual Fairfax Festival instead of a luncheon. Happy Hours periodically pop up throughout the year.

All FIA members and their employees are invited to attend any of these events.
Guests are allowed to attend 3 luncheons or happy hours before joining. If you are not a member and would like to check out the FIA, please join us!
Luncheon Videos – All luncheons are recorded on video and shared with FIA members. They can also be viewed on the Fairfax Forum (click here), along with other posts and highlights related to the FIA. It’s a great way to stay informed.
