Get ready for the convergence of two amazing events in our beloved riverside town. Save the dates: September 26-27!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are making a few changes! RiverFest (originally set for June) is postponed to September and to be combined with the Fall Arts & Crafts Show. That’s right, two amazing events will converge into one spectacular weekend festival.
The event is newly renamed the Occoquan RiverFest & Craft Show, and taking place Saturday, September 26 and Sunday, September 27.
This new event will bring out the best of both previously-planned events and we look forward to the new Occoquan RiverFest & Craft Show being a fantastic celebration to the end of Summer 2020. It will be a weekend full of fresh air, hope and family fun on our beloved Occoquan River. The COVID-19 pandemic has strengthened our resolve to keep Occoquan, Virginia thriving. We are a beloved riverside town built on the American dream of small business. We will continue to pivot and reinvent ourselves during this difficult time. There is no better way to harness the might and savvy of Occoquan, than to create a new event that brings together our American pride, our people, and our culture into one weekend festival.
About the Event
Occoquan’s RiverFest & Craft Show will include an Artisan’s Walk where you can browse juried art and craft vendors, plus a vendor Marketplace dedicated to conservation and outdoor water sports such as boating, scuba, kayaking, and stand-up paddle boarding. The event will also feature activities such as live entertainment, two food courts, a beer garden, river cruises, and stand-up paddleboard and kayak slalom races. We hope to see you then!
Important note: The health and well-being of our residents, patrons, merchants, and community is paramount. We will continue to closely monitor information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and local health and government authorities as the summer progresses, in order to make decisions about this event.
