Summer concerts are an American tradition. In the not-so-distant past, towns and villages across the nation boasted town bands and bandstands in the village square or the park at the center of town. Music was a catalyst, drawing young and old alike to come together as a community. Outdoors, in the long twilight of warm summer nights, the concerts marked, a time to relax, share a picnic supper and catch up with friends and neighbors.

The Fairfax County Park Authority has adopted this summer staple from small-town America to orchestrate a renewed sense of community in Fairfax County. The line-up for the Park Authority includes a wide array of performances from classical to bluegrass and everything in between as well as children’s performances, music and dance from around the world and drive-in movies.

New this year is the Springfield Nights concert series, held on Wednesday evenings at Burke Lake Park.

The free performances and movies are possible thanks to a strong partnership between government, volunteers, business sponsors, individual donors and the Fairfax County Park Foundation.

2018 Summer Entertainment Series offers the following series:

Tens of thousands of Fairfax County families have enjoyed these free performances over the years. We hope to see you this summer. Some series offer wine tasting and sales and food trucks.

Rain Cancellations:

Most performances are held outdoors and are cancelled due to inclement weather. Evenings on the Ellipse performances are held rain or shine. In the event of rain, performances are moved inside to the Fairfax County Government Center Forum. Call the HOTLINE at 703-324-7469 one hour prior to the start of the show for updates.
