Occoquan River Festival

Hope you've been enjoying the outdoors with the summer time weather we had earlier in the week! The upcoming bad weather will hopefully hold off until after Saturday because Occoquan is having their 2nd annual River Festival this Saturday!

Occoquan River Festival~ It’s happening In Occoquan!
Sat. May 2, 8am -8pm
• Farmers’ Market: 8:00 – Noon -come support some local farmer's!

• Sidewalk Sales - Great deals from shops in town.

• Live music: live musical groups playing throughout the day…throughout the town. I personally was responsible for finding most of the music, and it's really good this year!

• Craft Demonstrations: scattered about the town.

• Horse and carriage rides (fee)

• Petting zoo which includes a pony ride (fee)

• Conversations with a Historian at the museum, and the tourist center.

• Ghost tours @ 4:30, 6:00, and 7:00 (fee)

• Taste of Occoquan (fee, at Madigan’s, 3:00 – 5:00)

*Fireworks for the Make a Wish Foundation at dusk

I will be doing a Precious Metal Clay demonstration at 2, and again at 3PM on my deck outside my studio. I will also be having a sale on jewelry and another raffle for a gift certificate!
It would be great if you come to the festival for a fun, mostly free day with your kids! If you do, stop by and say Hi at Kelly's Artbox. :-)
