Community Engagement

FairField Center has historically provided numerous opportunities for the community to engage in listening sessions, discussions, educational events, and community-building activities with the goal of bringing people together for mutual understanding and problem solving. Activities ranging from Community Health Dialogues to Forums and Ethics Slams on hot topics, FairField Center leads the way in helping the community address issues that matter the most. 


One of the FairField Center’s most recognizable and well-loved vehicles for bringing people together is the Harrisonburg International Festival, a vibrant event that has celebrated multicultural unity for 20+years, drawing more than 10,000 in attendance. The festival is a powerful symbol of the many ways respect, appreciation, and understanding can enhance our lives.  For information on the Harrisonburg International Festival visit
