The Show will take place “RAIN OR SHINE.” Since this is an outdoor street show, you are responsible for your own shade, rain gear, chairs, set-up, tent weights, leveling devices, and any other items you may need as part of an outdoor event. You do not have to clear your site Saturday evening, but you are responsible for your own security. The Town will provide overnight security to patrol the streets; however, the Town is not responsible for securing individual tents or properties. The Town police will be in contact with local weather authorities and notify the Events and Community Development Director of significant weather affecting the show.
Complimentary coffee and pastries will be served at 7:00 am on Saturday and Sunday in the Occoquan Town Hall, located at 314 Mill Street. We’d love to see you there!
