An award-winning outdoor festival is being held in Historic Occoquan next month.
The 49th annual Spring Occoquan Arts and Crafts Show is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 2, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 3.
It will offer almost 300 crafters and artisans, live entertainment, activities and food, according to a release.
Attendees will see unique arts, crafts and handmade goods at the free event.
“Located 20 minutes south of D.C., exhibitors and shoppers will enjoy our small town oasis nestled along the Occoquan River,” Events Director Julie Little told What’s Up Prince William. “Our typically quiet streets come to life thanks to our strong community, loyal patrons and local art lovers.”
Performances will be taking place at River Mill Park and in other areas of the event.
Here is the entertainment schedule:
Saturday, June 2, 2018
Sunday, June 3, 2018
