Occoquan, Virginia is a small yet vibrant riverfront town, located 20 miles south of Washington, D.C. Home to just over 1,000 residents, we have 100+ small and family-owned businesses including award-winning restaurants, art galleries, hair & spa services, plus dozens of unique shops and boutiques. Whether you visit for the charming shops and restaurants, walking along the river boardwalk, or relaxing in one of the town’s waterfront parks, you will love Occoquan and our small-town quality of life!​

 

Originally an 18th-century mill town nestled on the banks of the Occoquan River, the town was made a Virginia historic landmark in 1983. Occoquan today has successfully combined nearly 300 years of history with modern attractions and events. Our twice-annual, two-day festivals (RiverFest & Craft Show in June and the Fall Arts & Crafts Show in September) attract tens of thousands of visitors from the Washington D.C. region and beyond. Occoquan also hosts seasonally themed town-wide events during Easter, Halloween, and the winter holidays, as well as a summer concert and a trivia night series in River Mill Park, all of which generate excitement and bring visitors to town.

 

Together with the Workhouse Arts Center and the Occoquan Regional Park, the Town of Occoquan creates Virginia’s first inter-jurisdictional arts and cultural district. This new district’s aim is to expand arts and cultural opportunities available to visitors in Prince William and Fairfax counties. The establishment of this district allows the town to work with other jurisdictions to brand the region as a destination for tourism, commerce, and cultural leisure activities.
