While not the Herndon Festival residents are used to, the town will bring back some summer festivities this year in a scaled-back format.
The annual festival is taking on a new form: a carnival.
The event takes place June 2-5 at the Northwest Federal Credit Union at 200 Spring Street, a town spokesperson told FFXnow.
Town staff said they have changed the format of the beloved town tradition to “help our town and department transition back to hosting events.”
“The plan is to host a full Herndon Festival in 2023. Northwest Federal Credit Union is our title sponsor,” said Abby Kimble, a spokesperson for the Herndon Parks and Recreation Festival.
This year’s event includes carnival rides, games, food vendors, strolling entertainers, a free shuttle bus, and a 5K race at the Herndon Community Center.
Next year’s festival, which will be the town’s 40th Herndon Festival, is expected to feature the more typical elements of the annual event: craft and business vendors, children’s activities, stages of entertainment, beer sales, and a 10k race.
More details are expected soon.
The festival was canceled for the last two years due to the pandemic. It departed from its usual location in downtown Herndon to the NFCU campus in 2020 due to expected construction in downtown Herndon.
