The Fall Occoquan Arts and Crafts Show will be held rain or shine on Saturday, Sept. 23, from 10:00 a. m. to 6:00 p. m. and Sunday, Sept. 24, from 10:00 a. m. to 5:00 p. m. in downtown Historic Occoquan. A 48-year tradition, this award-winning outdoor street festival features more than 300 artisans and crafters, fun interactive activities for the kids, live entertainment and great food! Be sure to stop by Mamie Davis Park to listen to live music.
Head to Mill House Museum for exciting, free events for the kids. Young visitors will be welcome to explore a firetruck or take a turn at dunking a policeman. Kids will also want to have their face painted or get their very own balloon art with Fairy Jennabelle.
Admission is free. Off-site parking with shuttle bus service is available at the Vulcan Materials lot, Lake Ridge Commuter Lot, Route 123 Commuter lot, and the I-95 Commuter lot. There is a $5 round trip shuttle fee payable at the event drop-off; kids 12 and under ride free.
Funds generated by the semi-annual Arts and Crafts Show support the Town’s Capital Improvement Program, which includes maintaining, updating, and implementing infrastructure improvements, building maintenance, and other public improvements like streets, sidewalks, gaslights, stormwater, and more.
