Celebrate Fairfax Is This Weekend

Holy crap! I just realized that Celebrate Fairfax starts tomorrow. I'm sure the festival staff, volunteers, exhibitors, musicians, county employees and many others are well aware that Northern Virginia's largest festival starts Friday, June 10th, but it sort of snuck up on me this year.

I wrote about this year's headliners a few months ago, and I'll provide ticket information below, but I want to give my annual plug for the festival here. Where you can you see a concert, particularly by Plain White T's, B-52s, or Living Colour, for $15? You can't. Ticket fees alone are usually that much. So Saturday afternoon, you decide that you want to see the B-52s. You didn't purchase advance tickets or take advantage of the deals below, but you want to get tickets at the door. $15 gets you in to see the B-52s. Oh, but there are also dozens of other performers on Saturday as well as the Silent Disco. And DockDogs Championship. And maybe you meet a chiropractor or gutter cover exhibitor that can give you a good deal on something you were already thinking of doing. And there are fireworks. And there are free kids activities. And a Donut Eating Contest. Yes, you'll have to pay more for carnival rides or food or beer (if you go to a Nationals game, they're not going giving out free hot dogs), but that's your choice on how much or little you want to spend on that. Again, all of this is $15 (or less with the deals below).

In addition, there are some new activities this year. While they are all on the Celebrate Fairfax website, I'm intrigued by team trivia on Friday night and the 5K on Sunday morning.

So here are your deals. If you visit any Northern Virginia Wegmans today (Thursday, June 9th), you can get adult tickets for $12 and youth tickets for $4. You can also purchase tickets for less than the door at the Celebrate Fairfax website. Finally, go to LivingSocial today to get a Sunday Funday Family Pack for up to 2 adults and 4 kids for only $22.

Hope to see you there!
