Clifton Day Festival

Come enjoy great food, live music, a train ride and other family-friendly activities when the town of Clifton puts on Clifton Day, an annual, festival held in one of Northern Virginia’s most beautiful and historic areas.   

Around 150 antique dealers, artists, bakers and other street vendors will line the town’s streets. Live bands, pony rides, craft demonstrations, children’s activities, a Civil War reenactment and a wide selection of food and beverage choices will add to the fun.

Clifton Day is the only day of the year when the train stops in the town. Festival goers can take the Virginia Railway Express (VRE), which 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).
