The Herndon Festival will return this year in the summer, bringing back a tradition that was scaled back to a carnival last year.

The festival is set to take place from June 1-4 at the Northwest Federal Credit Union campus (200 Spring Street). The credit union is the title sponsor for the free event.

The town announced the coming of the festival yesterday (Thursday), unveiling a new logo and media package.

But a town spokesperson said it was too early to share details on the planned scope of the festival.

“We are finalizing the scope of the festival in the coming weeks and will be able to announce more information soon,” Reid Okoniewski, a spokesperson for the town’s parks and recreation department told FFXnow in a statement.

Last year, the town organized an alternative to the annual festival — a carnival — at the same venue. The format of event to help the town transition back to hosting large-scale events following the height of the pandemic, FFXnow previously reported.
