The popular Occoquan Fall Arts and Crafts Show returns to the streets of Historic Occoquan on Sept. 25 and 26, 2021.  The show will be open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday and will take place rain or shine.

“For over 50 years, the Town has hosted its famous crafts show in the streets, but when the pandemic hit, we had to adjust our plans. We are eager to bring back the Fall Arts & Crafts Show to the streets of the historic district,” says Julie Little, Events and Community Development Director. “Many of our favorite artisans and crafters will return, with many new ones welcomed as well. We’re looking forward to a great open-air weekend full of fun, food, and fantastic shopping!”

In addition to the hundreds of art, craft, and food vendors along Mill Street, the Town will include a food court, kids’ activities, and a beer garden, featuring local craft brews from Water’s End Brewery in River Mill Park both days from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. Just Wanna Play is the featured band on Saturday and Redacted plays for the first time in Occoquan on Sunday. By parking at the Lake Ridge Commuter Lot, visitors can board the “Beer Garden Express” Green shuttle straight to the Beer Garden at River Mill Park.

At a cost of $5 per rider (kids 12 and under ride free), visitors will park at designated lots and will be transported by shuttle into Town to attend the show. The shuttle runs for patrons from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Riders are requested to mask up while riding the shuttle. Satellite parking can be found at three locations: (1) 123 Commuter Lot, at the corner of Route 123 and Old Bridge Road; (2) Lake Ridge Commuter Lot, at the corner of Old Bridge & Minnieville Roads; (3) and the Workhouse Arts Center, at 9518 Workhouse Rd. in Lorton. There is no additional admission fee at the gate.

The health and well-being of residents, patrons, businesses, and local community is paramount. The Town of Occoquan continues to closely monitor information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and local and government authorities to guide decisions about Town events.
