What's New


A Message from SHWCA President Steve Zarick

Greetings Neighbors,

As the summer starts to come to a close, it is time to shift our focus to the fall.  The civic association is very excited to be resuming a popular event from the past with our Oktoberfest party set for September 23rd.  This is an event for adults to gather for beer, bratwursts, and socializing.  More details will be coming soon but we hope to see many of you there.  

The changing season also means the start of our annual Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association membership drive.  We will soon be reaching out to all residents to either renew or join the civic association for 2024.  The SHWCA is a volunteer organization, not an HOA, open to both owners and renters in the Sleepy Hollow Woods neighborhood.  We rely on your support of only $30 annually to maintain common areas and entrances, create the neighborhood directory, and provide community and social events like our annual picnic.  

The pandemic took a major toll on participation in the civic association, but we are rebuilding and excited to welcome so many new neighbors who have moved here over the last 

few years.  As the membership grows, we can begin looking at new opportunities to host events and provide special opportunities to our members.  Input and feedback from every neighbor are encouraged as we look forward to what we can do in 2024. 

We depend on more than just the financial support.  Volunteers are needed to operate the civic association and everything we do.  The membership drive is where we can use the most help to ensure our entire neighborhood is included.  If you can help by providing any amount of your time, please contact me directly at  

Hello and welcome to the

Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association.


Sleepy Hollow Woods is a neighborhood of 377 homes (including Oak Knoll Estates, which is part of the Sleepy Hollow Woods Civic Association area) located in the Mason District of Fairfax County.  The community was founded in 1959, and remains one of the premier sites in the Northern Virginia area.  We are located in Annandale, Virginia, just off Columbia Pike and Sleepy Hollow Road.  For more information about our neighborhood, including its history, a local map, photos, and other info, click on the Our Community button above.


This site is intended to be another way of keeping our residents up-to-date on what is happening in the Woods, to let other people know about our community, and to serve as a central point for access to the various community documents.


SHWCA is also on Facebook.  Click here to go to our Facebook group.
