First Annual Chantilly Day An Exciting Success

Sunshine and smiles were out in full force at the first annual Chantilly Day on Saturday, May 12, where an estimated 10,000 local adventurers enthusiastically explored the festival's offerings.

From its opening to parade to its closing concert, this event showcased the best of Chantilly, bringing together local residents and businesses in new and exciting ways. In all, more than 100 businesses participated in the event, which was held at the Sully Place Shopping Center in front of Babies R Us.

The day succeeded in its mission, highlighting the businesses, arts, education and sciences in Chantilly to local residents and the greater Northern Virginia area through the vision and work of the Chantilly-Centreville Chamber of Commerce.

Chantilly Day represents the collaboration of many area business professionals, educators and governing officials, who worked tirelessly with the chamber to make the day a success. Without their help and the generous support of its sponsors, especially that of the title sponsor, the Westfields Business Owners Association and the host sponsor, Beatty Management Company, this dream could not have become a reality.

As it continues to grow in popularity, Chantilly Day will strengthen the incredibly dynamic community of Chantilly in new and exciting ways and build an increased sense of identity among residents and businesses whose interests, talents and activities make Chantilly the wonderful place it is to live and work.

Here’s what people are saying about the day:
