History of Fairfax

In a world shifting towards McMansions, Strip Malls, and architectural and suburban monotony, Fairfax is both figuratively and literally a breath of fresh air. In the forested hills 16 miles north of San Francisco, Fairfax offers the best balance of work and play, while retaining its small town atmosphere, charm, and identity.

The seasonal (June-September) Farmer’s Market is held each Wednesday evening in the Fairfax Park and is a gathering place for the entire community. Locally owned independent businesses, restaurants, cafes, and nightclubs offer shopping and nightlife options comparable to no other town, regardless of size. Couple that with award winning schools! It’s no surprise that San Francisco Magazine chose Fairfax among the Top 10 of the Bay Area’s 107 towns.

The countless miles of protected open space surrounding the town not only provide a beautiful backdrop for the town, but also provide the ultimate outdoorsman’s playground. There are simply more trails and open space than time in the day. Visitors of all ages come to Fairfax throughout the year to enjoy the wonderful climate and to explore the region on foot, horse and bicycle. And don't forgot that Fairfax is home to the Marin Museum of Bicycling. At this friendly bicycle cultural center in downtown Fairfax you can see the fascinating, 200-year evolution of the bicycle, and the social progress it encouraged. This is also the home of the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, showing the best collection anywhere of early mountain bikes and honoring people who have contributed to the sport. Marin County is known worldwide as the birthplace of mountain biking—here you'll find out why!

Many world renowned musicians call Fairfax home, and with 30 plus years of consecutive live music every night, Fairfax’s multiple venues offer a unique setting for local and national touring musicians to jam in a relaxed at home environment. And with over 20 restaurants and cafés, independent book stores, clothing, and gifts, there really is Fairfax variety, offering something for everybody. For the second year in a row, Fairfax has been voted as the "Best Little Town in Marin."
