Summerfest 2015

Few things are as enjoyable as summer in Southern California. The fine folks in Fountain Valley want to make you feel nice and carefree with a little thing called Summerfest.

Summertime in the FV!

Summertime in the Fountain Valley!

Come on down to Mile Square Park at Brookhurst and Heil and take part in all the revelry! There are live bands, a car show, food & beverages, carnival rides, and games that challenge your skills!

Summerfest Car Show

These were the first ones to show up for the car show at Summerfest.

This year was an interesting Summerfest for me. As I was walking through the ‘Fest, I saw all the families going on rides. I conversed with several vendors in the booths. I saw familiar faces. Then I began to reminisce about all the fun times of the previous summers in Fountain Valley.  Fountain Valley truly is a nice place to live. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Concerts in the Park

During the summer, you can find amazing events and things to do all over Southern California.
*In* July, Fountain Valley has fun family events like Concerts in the Park on Thursday nights. Its a free concert, so don’t worry. There’ll be food trucks that serve bacon wrapped dogs. There’s a farmers market where you can find sweet bundt cakes. This last week there was an Eagles tribute band that the crowd loved! Come out tonight to the last concert of the summer! I’ll be there too!

Summer is here again!

Summer is here again in Fountain Valley and that means one thing. Well, it means many things, but the important thing here is that Summerfest is back.

Come out to Mile Square Park at the Fountain Valley Sports Complex at Brookhurst & Heil to enjoy our annual Summerfest. There are rides, games, and food! Bring the family and have a blast!
