There's something about Fairfield...

Recently named by Smithsonian Magazine as one of America’s best small towns, Fairfield is big on culture and thriving on creativity.  Fairfield lives like a metropolitan community, earning  distinctions such as one of Iowa’s “Great Places” and being dubbed “America’s most unusual town” by Oprah. 

Fairfield is a unique place where the Iowan approach to life is spiced up with diverse culture, an eclectic scene of entertainment, shops, and eateries. Visit for a day, a weekend or more.  Have lunch at one of our bistros, visit with local artists during 1st Fridays Art Walk, bike through wetlands and prairies along the Fairfield Loop Trail, experience the magic of a Broadway inspired show at the Sondheim Center and discover what makes Fairfield unique.
