First Saturday in August
In addition to the day's outdoor events, festival participants will enjoy visiting the Friendship Firehouse Museum, originally built as a firehouse in 1855.
The FVFEA is now a philanthropic organization focusing on fire-fighting history and fire safety. It remains active in community events, including the annual Festival, and supports historic preservation of the building and its collection.
Food and beverages are available. Children will receive free fire helmets and are treated to a supervised visit inside the City's fire trucks. For more information, call 703.746.3891.
