Children enjoy a ride at Summer Days Festival

Fairfield Indian Summer Days Festival

Marking its 21st year in 1999, the Fairfield Indian Summer Days Festival is the premier community event in the city of Fairfield, Ohio. The three-day festival boasts activities for all ages, including musical performances, a parade with floats, crafts, animals, rides, and bingo. One recent festival included gymnastics performed by Amanda Borden and Jaycie Phelps, Olympic gold medal winners. Area businesses sponsor the festival, which funds six $500 scholarships to college-bound students from Fairfield's high schools and donations to local non-profit organizations such as the Boy Scouts. Included in the project materials are a written report, newspaper coverage, and 24 photographs.

Originally submitted by: John A. Boehner, Representative (8th District).
