Below are some sights and sounds of music in Fairfield:

Fairfield Municipal Band:

In the summer months, the Fairfield Municipal Band performs a concert series on the bandstand in Central Park.  Hundreds of families show up to listen to the music, visit with friends and family, and watch the toddlers "dance".  Church and social organizations often provide food and drink for nominal charge nearby.
