Next year, Occoquan will revamp its Spring Arts & Crafts Show, creating a dynamic new one-day event celebrating the historic town’s natural beauty along the Occoquan River.

RiverFest 2020 will feature a full day of activities for all ages, including live entertainment, great food, a juried artisans’ market, beverage garden, river activities, and more.

It’s a lively update to one of the town’s two famous Arts & Crafts Shows. The shows draw tens of thousands of visitors to the riverside town steeped in history yet vibrant with excellent restaurants, unique shops and art galleries.

For 50 years, Occoquan has closed its streets for the popular shows the first weekend in June and the last weekend in September. Tens of thousands of visitors pour into the town, immersing themselves in its walkable charm and beautiful art, music, and food.

The new RiverFest will inject vibrant new activities in the spring, complementing the many other single-day events in the town, such as Discover Occoquan, the Music & Movies on Mill summer series, and WinterFest.

The award-winning Fall Arts & Crafts Show remains unchanged, hosting hundreds of artisans from across the U.S. and their one-of-a-kind, handcrafted items.

Stay tuned for more information in the coming months. And be sure to come help us celebrate the Spring Arts & Crafts Show finale on June 1-2!
