Each year, the Fairfax County Park Authority, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors and Fairfax County Park Foundation offer free concerts, movies and children’s performances that are usually held in Fairfax County parks. They have moved online this summer because of COVID-19. The shows are made possible through private donations, which pay performers’ fees.
You do not need a Facebook account to view the concerts. The complete concert schedule, with links to join the concert live and information about the performers, is available on the Park Authority’s Summer Entertainment web site.
