The Battle of Manassas was the first major battle on land during the American Civil War. Known as the First Battle of Bull Run, this fight played a major role in shaping the history of this country. Over 150 years later, the town of Manassas carries that historical weight with pride and an eye towards modern joy. The Manassas Fall Jubilee runs every year and provides this historic town and event patrons with a wealth of fun activities.
This year’s event will feature a wide variety of live music, shopping and more. With performers suited for children and adults, there promises to be some fun sounds for everybody in the family. The jubilee will also host over 100 craft and clothing booths for shopping and learning. As happy attendees peruse the depths of entertaining options, they will also have the opportunity to taste some wine at the jubilee’s wine garden. Other neat activities and vendors include a farmers market, pumpkin patch and children’s farms.
Free to the public, the Fall Jubilee is truly built around an all-inclusive familial and communal atmosphere. The experience of visiting a town like Manassas is interesting in the sense that it does hold profound historical value, however, in addition to that, it also maintains a proud and happy community. Put yourself in front of the history this fall while also letting your hair down, and celebrate the fact that this piece of American soil is now used for fun instead of violence.
The 31st Annual Manassas Fall Jubilee will take place on Saturday, October 4th in Old Town Manassas. Anybody who finds themselves in the nearby Washington, DC and Georgetown area should absolutely check out this old school town and modern day celebration. Shop, dance and eat with the whole family at this year’s jubilee.
