Upcoming Events and Announcements

Occoquan is a place that all should experience, for here there is something for everyone. Within walking distance from any point in town you will find a compelling blend of the traditional and the innovative, the relaxed and the vibrant, the past and the present. You can choose to amble among our eclectic mix of more than fifty small shops for hidden treasures. Or you can sit at one of our numerous restaurants for everything ranging from sandwiches and specialty pizzas to fine wines, craft beers, and white-tablecloth dining. Perhaps you’ll make your choice based on venue and entertainment, for in Occoquan you can dine along a river, in a garden, or on a porch or patio, all the while listening to live music from an array of genres and quality local talent. If the arts attract you, know that Occoquan is part of a regional arts and cultural district and hosts several art cooperatives whose members work in a variety of media. Interested in history? Then you will want to visit Occoquan’s Mill House Museum and explore our almost three-hundred-year heritage, marvel at our eighteenth and nineteenth-century buildings, and peruse our numerous and varied historic markers. Those of an outdoor bent will want to consider strolling through River Mill Park or along Occoquan’s boardwalk. Perhaps you will even want to get out on the beautiful river that shares our name in a kayak or standup paddleboard. 

You can do all these things in Occoquan, on one visit or on many. Welcoming variety is one of our virtues. We hope it will encourage you to come back often and experience Occoquan. 

Perhaps you will even decide to stay.
