Fairfax City’s Economic Development Office, in collaboration with the Old Town Fairfax Business Association, is hosting the third annual Old Town Fairfax City Fall Crawl – Saturday, October 30 from 2:00 to 7:00 PM beginning in the courtyard of Old Town Plaza at 3950 University Drive, #210. This year’s event will feature ten Old Town Fairfax City restaurants offering scary good quick bites and special offers when a crawl passport is shown as part of a great way to get into the Halloween spirit.
“The Old Town Fairfax City Fall Crawl is an eating adventure where attendees can plot their own course as they experience things that sizzle and melt while dressed in their best Halloween costumes,” said Danette Nguyen, Assistant Director of Economic Development. “Creating a food crawl that is paired with drinks not only drives awareness to local culinary offerings in Fairfax City, it also pairs perfectly with celebrating the Halloween spirit in a unique and fun way.”
The Crawl is a timed self-guided event with attendees checking in at Old Town Plaza to have their photo taken for a costume contest and to pick up a crawl passport. The passport highlights participating restaurants and exclusive promotions. Attendees obtain a stamp for their passport when a purchase is made and those attendees that make a purchase at four or more restaurants will receive a commemorative silicone wine glass, while supplies last, when they return to Old Town Plaza. The best male and female Halloween costumes will receive a gift basket and a $50 gift card to a participating Old Town Fairfax City Fall Crawl restaurant of their choice.
Shannon Duffy, Executive Director of the Old Town Fairfax Business Associations, said, “This time of year makes for a fun Fall Crawl in Old Town Fairfax. The community enjoys meeting up with friends and families to sample our restaurant offerings and to show their support for our dedicated business community.”
