Know Before You Go:

The entire town is closed to traffic for this event. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes because over 300 vendors are spread out over many blocks and a gravel path park. If you choose to walk in, park at the commuter lot on Old Bridge Road and Route 123.

Bring a picnic blanket or beach towel to enjoy your festival food -- seating will be limited, and the streets will be unbelievably crowded (think Bourbon Street at 1 a.m. during Mardi Gras!).

Most vendors take credit cards, but cash is always appreciated. There is one ATM in town, across from the town gazebo.

The majority of the Occoquan businesses will be participating in the event. Stop by one of the local restaurants or quaint boutiques to escape the craziness!

For additional information, including a full list of vendors, visit the Occoquan Arts and Craft Show website.
