Small Business Saturday

Emphasizing the significance of supporting small and locally owned businesses in Fairfax City

How it Works

Small Business Saturday, observed annually on the first Saturday after Thanksgiving, is a focal point in Fairfax City with the collaborative efforts of Fairfax City Economic Development, the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce, and the Old Town Fairfax Business Association. This collaborative initiative aims to emphasize the importance of local small businesses, fostering community engagement and encouraging residents to actively support and patronize these establishments during the holiday season.
