Ahh, it’s officially the spring season and we are so happy that it is! It’s finally warm enough to head outside and explore all that Manassas VA, home to Arcadia Run, has to offer.
Here’s a line up of all the fun happenings this April in Manassas!
First Friday: Founder’s Day!
This upcoming First Friday is certainly a special one – because it also coincides with Founder’s Day! Founder’s Day celebrates the Foundation of Manassas as an independent city, with participating First Friday shops and restaurants focusing on the history of our beloved Manassas. So make sure to head down to Historic Downtown from 6pm to 9pm this first Friday in April!
Browse Farmer’s Markets
The spring season also means Farmer’s Market open back up for business! In Manassas, we have several markets bringing fresh produce to shoppers weekly. Check out the markets and operating hours at the Harris Pavilion or in Lot B at Prince William and West Street.
Live Well Festival
This year on April 18th will be the 8th Annual Live Well Festival (formerly known as Spring Cleaning Day). With a 5K Run, free health screenings at the Harris Pavilion, kid’s activities, entertainment and sidewalk sales, we think this festival is one of the best ways to kick off the spring season!
Saturday at the Park
Also on April 18th from 10am-3pm is the Saturday at the Park event at Manassas National Battlefield Park. Presented by Prince William County Public Schools and SPARK: The Education Foundation for PWCS, this is a wonderful way for you and your kids to explore the park and learn something new while you’re at it. With different activity stations featuring everything from bird watching to water chemistry, this day is sure to be packed full of fun!
Pied Piper Theatre: Shrek the Musical
Coming to the Hylton Performing Arts Center this April is the Pied Piper Theatre with Shrek the Musical! This hysterical and adventurous musical is great for the whole family and will certainly be a wonderful weekend activity.
