Join us Jan. 19 at Mosaic District for our first Fairfax Polar Plunge

Grab whatever costume floats your boat and join us for the coolest event of the year, the Polar Plunge® Festival, Jan. 19 at The Mosaic District in Fairfax! Hundreds of frozen friends will enjoy tunes by 107.3 FM, cool shirts from CustomInk and great food and drinks from local restaurants – not to mention an icy dip into an above-ground pool in winter! – all to raise money for Special Olympics Virginia.

“We are excited to bring a Polar Plunge to the Fairfax community for the first time, and already have received such a warm and generous welcome,” said Fairfax County Police Chief Ed Roessler. “The Mosaic Polar Plunge is an opportunity to grow awareness for Special Olympics Virginia.”

Bring your friends and family out for live music and chance to claim the title as the best-dressed plunger! Remember it's $100 to take the Plunge, but the more you raise, the cooler the prizes. Plungers can register in advance or onsite beginning at noon; plunges begin at 1 pm.
