To encourage customers to shop local, Fairfax City will celebrate the holidays this weekend with Small Business Saturday on Nov. 27. The fun will also include the City’s annual, Elf Scavenger Hunt, plus special offers and giveaways. Fairfax City’s Economic Development Office is putting on this event in partnership with the Central Fairfax Chamber of Commerce and the Old Town Fairfax Business Assn. And all three entities are delighted to participate.

According to The Connection Newspapers, "Established in 2010 and held on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday is a nationwide initiative to help local communities thrive by encouraging shoppers to support independently owned businesses during the holidays. And, said Danette Nguyen, the City’s assistant economic development director, “As a Small Business Saturday Neighborhood Champion, Fairfax City serves as an ambassador for the Shop Small cause by supporting, rallying, and bringing other businesses together throughout the holiday season." As per The Connection Newspapers, "An important part of the City’s Shop Small movement is Fairfax’s Elf Scavenger Hunt, which will begin at 9 a.m. with a welcome station at Old Town Hall, 3999 University Drive. There, attendees can pick up treats and giveaways – including tote bags, coffee, and cocoa, participate in children’s activities, have a photo taken with Santa, and pick up an Elf Scavenger Hunt card. Children may also mail their letters to Santa, create elf picture frames and have up to three gifts wrapped for free, while supplies last, until 2 p.m."
