Enjoy summer fun!
Summer is (unofficially) here: time to enjoy some fun outside! We recently updated our list of 10 Area Water Parks (all right here in NOVA!) and our annual Guide to Free Summer Concerts featuring more than 250 concerts from more than three dozen series providing outdoor shows. There are concerts every day of the week! Also be sure to see our big list of community festivals!
Festival season means dozens of great events!
Get ready for fun! Spring through summer means about 100 community festivals in our area, and our HUGE annual list has them all in one place! This annual guide, now in its fifth year, is the most comprehensive list of community festivals in the Northern Virginia area that celebrate a particular neighborhood, culture, ethnicity, or food and beverage. Best of all, as always ALL of the events listed are family-friendly celebrations!
