ViVa Vienna, the town fair, is my favorite event of the year — fried everything, cotton candy, deep fried Oreos, fun rides, fun games, just an all around fun time for everyone.
ViVa Vienna is made up of rides for the kids, some for the smaller crew and some for the older crew who likes faster/higher rides, usually games (knock down the clown, pop the balloon, fishing for a duck), vendors (arts, crafts, photos, local businesses), and fair food. Think meat on a stick, turkey legs and fried everything. It’s glorious and fun. They also have shows on the town green in the amphitheater.
The event is Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from 10am to 10pm. You can buy wristbands online now and avoid the long wait to buy them the day of. You’ll still need to wait in line as this is a voucher for the wristband, but it’s still much faster. Just go ahead and buy the unlimited ride band now and save yourself the kid meltdown later. You can also buy tickets to BrewFest as well. BrewFest will have beer from Caboose, plus wine, food and live music, but it’s only open on Saturday and Sunday from Noon to 10pm.
Bring water! Bring snacks if you don’t want to buy food. The kids (and adults) get hot and hungry, and that’ll kill anyone’s day.
The Vienna Singing Princesses are always a hit, and are on the entertainment schedule to perform Saturday morning. The Vienna Jammers and the Great Zucchini are on the schedule for Monday morning. Check out the Lawyers Road Stage for more shows too.

Logistics: there are recommendations by the Rotary Club for parking spots. Be careful of residential streets that may have no parking signs, and try not to block driveways.
One tip: we like to go on Saturday before lots of vendors make the attendance even more crowded. Vendors are only set up for Sunday/Monday. However, we do go back because you get to meet some local faces, shop artists, hit a hockey puck with the Caps local outreach team, and more. It’s all fun, but for some people who like to avoid the larger crowds – plan to go on Saturday.
