Welcome to Fairfax

Fairfax is proud of its quirky reputation. Nestled in forested hills, it exudes a low-key small town appeal. A bicycle friendly culture makes the most of its sunny climate. And with lots of open space, the opportunities for hiking, biking, and horseback riding are many. There is a town ordinance against chain stores, so shops and restaurants have their own unique personalities. An Art Deco movie theater plays a wide range of films, and on warm evenings live music is everywhere – both jazz and popular.
