Discover a day filled with family friendly fun at the Old Town Warrenton Spring Festival
Admission is free for this one-day craft fair that draws 25,000-30,000 people from around the region, rain or shine. Located on the edge of the Washington, DC, metropolitan area, Warrenton historic Main Street transforms into a craft festival featuring more than 250 artisans and crafters, food vendors, and entertainers offering something to please everyone in the family.
Craft offerings include jewelry, handmade toys, photography and fine art, handcrafted items for the home and yard, pottery, handbags, and personal accessories. Festival food includes hot dogs, hamburgers, barbeque chicken, crab cakes, fresh-squeezed lemonade, gyros, kettle corn, funnel cakes, steak and cheese, and shaved ice treats. Many vendors come from Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, and West Virginia, but some come from as far away as New Hampshire, Florida, and Michigan to sell their wares at the festival.
Performers delight festival-goers from the steps of the historic Old Courthouse; entertainers include local dance academies and Shenandoah Travelers bluegrass.
The Warrenton Spring Festival Committee will judge the artisans and craftsmen applications received and allocate spaces determined by information received and prior observance.
Applicants must send three (3) pictures of their craft or food booth with application and a stamped self-addressed envelope. To print out an application and apply to be a vendor, please contact the Fauquier Chamber of Commerce.
