Celebration of Community Spirit
The Rotary Club of Vienna sponsors the ViVa! Vienna! event, which celebrates the unity and strength of the Vienna community and honors Memorial Day. This event, a time of family fun and pleasure, serves as a major fund raising opportunity for the Rotary Club so that it may, in turn, provide support for charitable, educational, and community groups the following year.
Vienna’s historic Freeman House, Old Vienna Railroad Station, the Caboose, W & OD Trail, and Church Streets at Dominion and Mill all provide the primary setting for the ViVa! Vienna! festival. On Sunday and Monday, Church Street will be closed to traffic from Lawyers Road to Mill Street to allow booths for artisans, retail vendors, political parties and candidates, professional groups, and community organizations.” One option is, “Vienna’s historic Freeman House, Old Vienna Railroad Station, the Caboose, W & OD Trail, Caffi Field, and Church Streets at Dominion and Mill all provide the primary setting for the ViVa! Vienna! festival. On Sunday and Monday, the vendors will be located at a new location on Caffi Field where we will have a reduced footprint but still some great stuff from around our community. The streets will still be closed to traffic from Lawyers Road to Mill Street to support people and our local business to showcase their businesses.
