50th Annual Clifton Day Festival
Around 150 antique dealers, artists, bakers and other vendors will line the streets of Clifton when the town hosts Clifton Day, one of the Washington, D.C. area’s longest running and most popular festivals. This year’s event is on Sunday, October 8 from 9 am until 5 pm.
Other attractions include live bands, a Civil War reenactment and an outdoor demonstration area where festival goers can watch skilled artisans at work and learn about wine making, basket weaving and other traditional crafts. Dance performances, pony rides, children’s activities and plenty of food and beverage choices will add to the fun.
Clifton Day, which began in 1967, is the only day of the year when the train stops in the town. The Virginia Railway Express (VRE) will provide roundtrip train service to Clifton from all stops between Manassas and Rolling Road. The train ride to Clifton is free and the return trip costs $5 per person (children under age two ride free).
The 2017 festival, hosted by the Clifton Betterment Association (CBA), raises funds for the Girl and Boy Scouts, Clifton Lions Club, Acacia Lodge, the Clifton Presbyterian Church and other nonprofit groups.
Admission is free. Parking starts at five dollars per car. For more information about Clifton Day, visit www.cliftonday.com or the festival’s Facebook page.
