Vendors are asked to park on the access road adjacent to the river and are allotted one vehicle for the weekend. 


There will be overnight coverage in the park from our local police department. There is no need to completely take down your tent. You’ll want to secure it to make sure it stays put. Remember that all tents need to be weighted down. Stakes are NOT allowed in this park.


  • Be sure to sign up for a load in slot.
  • At your designated interval, drive up to River Mill Park at 458 Mill Street and park in the cul-de-sac.
  • Off load onto the sidewalk area or directly into a utility vehicle if available. A market marshall will be on site to oversee goods temporarily stowed in the cul-de-sac.
  • With your off load complete, move your vehicle to the Vendor Parking area on the access road to allow room for the next shift. Do not leave your vehicle in the cul de sac parking spots. See the map below to the vendor parking area.

Thank you for  your support of the Town of Occoquan! We wish you a successful weekend while you are in town with us!
