Entertainment & The Arts
Fairfax County’s art scene and entertainment options are as diverse as our population.
For live music, we offer visitors different vibes ranging from beloved local venues with nightly shows and sophisticated concert halls with a wide range of performances, to iconic seasonal outdoor venues that have become an annual musical pilgrimage for many.
For lovers of the visual and performing arts, we’re home to one of the most diverse, historic, unique, and interactive art centers found anywhere in the region, as well as a host of other delightful art galleries scattered throughout our cities and town.
In addition to our robust music schedule and artistic must-sees, we also have a multitude of critically acclaimed professional theatre companies performing seasonal favorites, original shows, and local productions of popular plays.
Combine these entertainment choices with some of the best shopping on the East Coast, memorable DIY experiences, exciting games and amusements for both young and old, and movie theaters located throughout the county, finding entertainment is never a problem
