About City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation

The City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation offers three historic wedding venues for couples in the greater Washington, D.C. area. These three venues, all located within the town of Fairfax, Virginia, include the Old Town Hall building in the colonial revival style, the Historic Blenheim and its Civil War Interpretive Center, and the Stacy C. Sherwood Center, a banquet space surrounded by a park. Couples will find these venues in Northern Virginia, approximately 30 minutes from downtown Washington, D.C.

Facilities and Capacity

These venues have a maximum capacity of 400 guests for a couple’s wedding day. The Old Town Hall is located in the center of Old Town Fairfax. This historic building, with its white facade and columns, features a rich past with completely updated amenities. Old Town Square Park, located next door to the government building, makes the perfect scenic backdrop for wedding photos or potentially a ceremony, thanks to the green garden spaces and water features. The Historic Blenheim features a Civil War Interpretive Center to add an historical element to a couple’s special day. Despite the appearance and function of this venue, couples will find modern amenities to keep all wedding attendees comfortable. The building’s red and cream exterior also makes for shockingly beautiful wedding portraits. The Stacy C. Sherwood Center is a banquet space with a modern interior and functionality. The brick exterior includes a portico with white columns to give the building a classic appearance. Located in Van Dyck Park, the gorgeous landscaping surrounding this venue will wow guests as they glance out the many windows. It also makes a great location for wedding ceremonies or portraits.

Services Offered

Couples will find similar services at all three wedding venues operated by the City of Fairfax Parks and Recreation. Ceremonies and receptions are options at all three spaces, while some welcome couples for additional wedding-related events such as rehearsal dinners. Event staff help with the event planning process to take some of the weight off the couple’s shoulders. There is also parking available at each venue, making them accessible for guests. Chairs, setup, and tables are also included when couples rent one of these wedding venues.

    We held our wedding at the Old Town Hall in February 2018 and absolutely loved this venue! We held the ceremony upstairs in the library, cocktail hour and dinner downstairs, then dancing back upstairs. For 120 guests, this was perfect! Having both floors throughout the reception meant guests who didn't want to dance could go downstairs to talk and catch up. Everyone raved about how beautiful the space was! Perfect for a vintage, romantic feel.

    I couldn't have been happier with our wedding at Old Town Hall. We had about 90 guests and held the ceremony upstairs and the reception downstairs. The size was perfect- with 9 tables, there was still plenty of room for dancing, the DJ and the buffet table. Like every other review has already said, the staff are incredible. They are quick to respond, very helpful and kind. We worked with Sarah Khan Event Styling to add string lights and tassels between the columns and it made the space feel bright and festive. This vendor was the first we booked and we couldn't have had a better experience anywhere else.

    Beautiful venue - great for a wedding/reception or both. I've had the pleasure of providing wedding flowers for three receptions at this venue over the past few years.
