Ahh, it’s officially fall. What do you have on your bucket list this season? Here are a few of our favorite fall activities around the Manassas area – and we think you’ll enjoy them too!
To kick off your fall festivities, visit the 3rd annual Bands, Brews, and Barbeque Festival this weekend (Sep. 28, 12:00pm to 7:00pm) on The Manassas Museum Lawn. This is a free festival where attendees can enjoy a picnic on the lawn, the best barbeque in Virginia, and listen to talented bands play everything from rock to jazz.
The following weekend, stop by the 31st Annual Manassas Fall Jubilee in Old Town Manassas. This event is the classic fall festival with everything from crafts, to face painting, to food and entertainment. If you’re not quite ready for fall, this festival is sure to put you in the mood.
Just 20 minutes out of Manassas is Burnside Farms, a farm that offers pick-it-yourself organic produce. You can pick out the perfect pumpkin for carving or get a basket full of fresh apples.
If you can’t make it to a farm, visit the Farmer’s Market held every week in Manassas. In the fall, produce switches to pumpkin, squash, kale, and other seasonal fruits and vegetables. Visiting a local farmer’s market lets you buy the freshest produce while supporting local farmers.
Feel like indulging in a little history? No problem. Visit the Manassas National Battlefield Park on a sunny day to explore the rich history of our town. This park is also the number one ranked attraction in Manassas! Go with your friends or family to take a tour and learn a little bit about the 1st and 2nd Battle of Manassas. The crisp air and colorful leaves will only add to your experience.
These are only just a few of the many, many things to do in Manassas during the fall season. We look forward to more festivals, spooky attractions, and colder weather in the future!
