Upcoming Events

NOTE: Given the current COVID-19, pandemic, we are evaluating and making adjustments to our events and luncheon calendar. We will be posting updates on the FIA site and notifying members via email and social media.


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.
