Fairborn sponsors and supports many recreational programs throughout the year, with strong emphasis on youth sports and family-friendly activities. From June to early August, various summer youth programs take place, designed to entertain children ages 6 to 12. Younger kids can participate in some programs as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Summer and fall bring community softball leagues, and every summer brings a new tennis league if you enjoy single or double matches. Fairborn offers ways for anyone of any age to find something to enjoy no matter what you love to do.
Festival lovers near and far flock to Fairborn for a variety of annual city events. The popular Fairborn Skate Jam encourages young athletes to show off their skating skills, be it on inline skates or skateboards. The festival features skaters, musical entertainment, and plenty of fair-type foods and vendors to satisfy your wants and needs. Every July brings about the annual Fairborn 5K, featuring door prizes, prizes for the top three racers in each age group, and refreshments after the event. From April to October each year, the Fairborn Farmers Market offers fresh local produce at the Fifth-Third Commons.
