The Fall Occoquan Arts and Crafts Show will be held rain or shine on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 10:00 a. m. to 6:00 p. m. and Sunday, Sept. 30, from 10:00 a. m. to 5:00 p. m. in downtown Historic Occoquan. A 49-year tradition, this award-winning outdoor street festival features about 250 artisans and crafters from all over the region and U.S., fun interactive activities for the kids, live entertainment and great food!

While you’re browsing the many one-of-a-kind arts, crafts, and handmade goods featured throughout the show, be sure to make time to stop by our parks for wonderful entertainment. We are pleased to offer the Manassas Ballet, Ordway Conservatory of Classical Ballet, and Rockledge Assembly of Country Dancers our beautiful River Mill Park as a venue to showcase their talents. In addition, local favorite Drive In Riot will rock the park with Southern Blues style classics on Saturday, and Denny Eigell will play all your classic favorites in Mamie Davis Park on Sunday.

Kids will want to visit Mill House Museum for exciting, free events. 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. While you are down by the park, be sure to enter this fall’s drawing for the 1966 Ford Mustang Convertible!
