FCPA 2022 Summer Entertainment Series Announced

Summer Entertainment SeriesFairfax County Park Authority’s Summer Entertainment Series is back!

This year the Summer Entertainment Series features more shows at 18 locations, a new global dance and music series Wednesday evenings in Falls Church, Starlight drive-in movies in Centreville Saturday evenings in August, plus 180 live performances to choose from.

You’ll find outstanding local and national touring groups, including the famous The Box Tops on June 17 at Grist Mill Park, D.C.’s own Junkyard Go-Go Band July 20 at Lee District Park, internationally acclaimed Nada Surf’s alternative rock July 30 at Arrowbrook Centre Park, and the incomparable Seldom Scene Aug. 4, 2022 at Nottoway Park.

There will be local vineyards offering free wine tasting (and sales) at Arrowbrook Centre Park, Grist Mill Park and the Government Center, as well as beer sales and a food truck at Burke Lake Park. The Workhouse Center concert series will feature local comedians as opening acts on Saturday evenings! For details regarding each series, go to the Summer Entertainment Series website.  

These free performances and movies are possible thanks to a strong partnership between the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, our volunteers, business sponsors, individual donors and the Fairfax County Park Foundation.

Performances are held outdoors and are subject to cancellation due to inclement weather. So, pack a picnic basket, umbrella, blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy evenings of music in the parks, as well as Saturday and Wednesday morning shows just for children!

Call the HOTLINE at 703-324-SHOW (7469) one hour before the start of the show for rain cancellations. A complete schedule of all performances can be found at the Summer Entertainment Series website.
