Fairfax Connector's Winterfest

Holiday Bus Wrap

Join us to celebrate the winter season with Fairfax Connector's first ever Winterfest Santa Bus! 

  • Date: Saturday, December 9
  • Time: 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
  • Location: Fairfax County Government Center, Lot B (12000 Government Center Pkwy, Fairfax, VA 22035)
  • Parking: Free parking available in Lot A 

Winterfest is FREE to attend, however tickets are required for entry and to secure a time slot to visit Santa on our specially designed Santa Bus. Due to the popularity of this event, we added a Cookies with Mrs. Claus Bus with a general admission Winterfest ticket. At the event entrance, a volunteer will ask to see your Winterfest and/or Santa visit confirmation email(s). This is your "ticket". You do not need a physical paper ticket to enter. 

Sign up to attend Winterfest here.  

SOLD OUT! Secure a time slot with Santa here.

Please note: Your party must arrive at least 10 minutes prior to their Santa visit time slot. Anyone arriving after their designated time slot may have to wait until all visitors for that time block have completed their visits.

A Spanish translator will be available to assist Santa for our Spanish speaking community members. 

Santa Pictures: Parents and/or guardians, using their cell phone or other camera, are welcome to take photos with Santa at their designated time slot. A helper will be available to take family pictures with Santa. Fairfax Connector will not provide printed photos at the event.  

The Santa Bus: This year Fairfax Connector designed festive bus wraps that will be featured on three of our buses!

  • Holiday Cookies
  • Santa Gnomes
  • Plaid Trees

All will be at Winterfest and serve as a nice backdrop for pictures! 

Also, keep an eye out for them on the roadways beginning Nov 27.
