The Town of Occoquan is bringing back its popular Fall Arts and Crafts Show on Sept. 25 and 26, 2021.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing and gathering restrictions, the Town canceled both of its 2020 arts and crafts shows. The Spring 2021 event was replaced with an Artisan Market series on single weekends in May and June, entirely hosted in River Mill Park. The Artisan Market series was a scaled-down version of Occoquan’s traditional Arts and Crafts show. The series hosted some long-time favorite vendors and featured many new artisans. Originally, the Artisan Market series included a third event in July. However, that event has been rescheduled to occur during the Town’s HolidayFest on Dec. 4 and 5, 2021.
“Thank you to our patrons, artisans, businesses, and volunteers for making the Artisan Market weekends a wonderful success,” says Julie Little, Events Director. “[W]e have rescheduled our July Artisan Market to occur during HolidayFest in December … [W]e are looking forward to continuing to bring great events to Occoquan this summer and gearing up for the return of our beloved Fall Arts and Crafts Show!”
The Town will host several events this summer including monthly concerts featuring local bands and the popular Trivia Nights in River Mill Park. In addition, Discover Occoquan Week will occur August 13 through 22. The week will feature events for the whole family. Among the events are concerts, ghost tours, interactive classes and free demonstrations by town businesses, a beer garden, scavenger hunt, kayak tours and more!
