What is your OCQ passion? Crafts and home décor? We have you covered, from candle and card crafting to mosaic making and textile transfers.

Is your passion personal style or health and beauty? We gotcha. We’ll showcase special fashion looks and feature makeup demos.

Are you an athlete? Check out our yoga classes and watch a river dive.

Antiques and collectibles? Check.

Are you interested in art? We’ll feature the works of some of Occoquan’s many talented artists with virtual screenings and small in-person demos, door prizes, and more, including a special presentation on building a leaded glass window!

We’ll kick off the week on Monday, August 17 with a Facebook Live event at 6pm, highlighting special Occoquan-themed art and home decor.

Friday through Sunday, join Occoquan Spirits for a Haunted Pub Crawl and Ghost Tour!

To wrap up our fun-filled week, we’ll also host a special, social distanced screening of The Princess Bride in River Mill Park on Saturday night!
