Each year, about 8,000-10,000 visitors attend the annual Burke Centre Festival. This past weekend was no exception, as families arrived with kids of all ages, basking in the last summer rays of the season. The 42nd Festival was held from Sept. 7-8, 2019 at the Conservancy Festival Grounds.
The festival included 123 booths from 18 food vendors, 63 arts and crafts exhibitors, 25 outreach booths, Fairfax County Police and Fairfax County Fire and Rescue displays. Other attractions included amusement rides, pony rides, live bands, dance performances, midway style games, a wine garden, and an interactive wildlife show from the Hidden Pond Nature Center.
