Upcoming Events

 

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.

Given the current pandemic, we ask that everyone follow any current covid mandates in place at the time of our event. Click here to view our calendar.
