Wanna sing, wanna dance, wanna revel? What about jubilee?

Not sure if one can jubilee, exactly, but if one can, you can bet one will at the 29th Annual Manassas Fall Jubilee. This year’s jubilee will take place October 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and will feature a bunch of fun stuff for the whole family.

This is a free event held rain or shine. The main attraction of the Manassas Fall Jubilee is the collection of artisans and crafters who will be hawking their wares. More than 100 vendors will be on hand to exhibit the fruits of their labor: jewelry, photography, woodcrafts, children’s clothing and other goodies. Here is a full list of participants and a map of the shindig.

Some community exhibits will be raffling off prizes. Win one of those, and we’ll see who’ll be singing and dancing! There will be food at the jubilee, as well.

The tots will have a ball in the Kid’s Neighborhood, sponsored by Northwest Federal Credit Union. There they’ll be entertained with music, face-painting, games and prizes. Among those performing on the Kid Stage will be the Happy Feet Cloggers, Showcase Dance Studio and the Ronin Fencing Foundation, which will put on a fencing demonstration.

Best of all, kids get to decorate their own pumpkin at the Wegmans Pumpkin Patch.

Not to be outdone, the grownups will be entertained on the Main Stage by the likes of Southern rock/country-tinged Everwilde, the acoustic stylings of No Charge and the male/female-fronted cover band The Rockersons. Check out their cover of Fountains of Wayne’s “Stacey’s Mom.” There will also be a Dance Area where troupes will perform.

In what may be the most unique attraction at the jubilee, the Chainsaw Chix will be on hand to sculpt a masterpiece. The women’s division of the Masters of the Chainsaw, these girls really can create a work of art.

Come on down to historic Old Town Manassas, where you can dance, sing and – dare I say it – jubilee all you want. A great place to rent an apartment, Manassas gives you that small-town feel only 30 miles southwest of the nation’s capital. You can find an apartment that meets your needs on Apartment Showcase.
