Country Fair & Auctions

Join us for a red, white and blue celebration of community, family, friendships and fun for all ages as Youth For Tomorrow hosts its 37th Annual Country Fair & Auctions on Saturday, October 8, 2022. (NEW DATE!)

From amusements, pony rides, petting zoo and activities for the kids, to great food and live entertainment for the grown-ups to the popular silent auction and exciting live auction, there is truly something for every member of the family!

Every dollar raised helps support the mission of Youth For Tomorrow, allowing us to continue helping children in crisis who need a safe place to live and heal; by placing children in loving foster families; and by providing mental health counseling to help children and adults across Northern Virginia cope with life’s challenges, overcome substance use or rebuild relationships.
