RiverFest will host 200+ vendors along Mill Street. Artisans, crafters, food vendors, and local merchants will line the streets as we kick off summer in Occoquan. River Mill Park, with its spectacular views of the river, will be the venue for our RiverFest concerts, food, and adult beverages.
A major theme of RiverFest is conservancy. In the center of town, preservation vendors will discuss sustainability, recycling, and the importance of protecting our river ecosystem. Families and scout troops will enjoy the kid-friendly and educational Jr. Passport program, where interested youth complete a series of activities on-site and earn a badge. Kids won’t want to miss the climbing rock wall and other hands-on art and science activities.
Those longing to get out on the water will have their opportunity at RiverFest with kayak and stand-up paddleboard races and tours, taking place throughout the weekend on the Occoquan River. Spectators can watch and cheer from the public dock or footbridge.
