PRESENTED BY:  

The 18th Annual Manassas Heritage Railway Festival is a family celebration of the rich railway history that Manassas has to offer.  Manassas Junction was the site of both the 1st and 2nd Battles of Manassas during the Civil War and of the nation’s first military railroad. Attracting over 30,000 individuals from the MD, DC, and Northern Virginia areas, Festival attendees can enjoy a day of train fun for the whole family. 

 
 
 

Attendees can enjoy elaborate model train displays, live music (Country to Blue Grass), performances by community groups, inflatables, vendors specializing in train memorabilia, or take an excursion ride on the VRE! 

Scenic Excursion Train Rides (to Clifton and back) will be available for purchase at the Manassas Train Depot (9431 West Street) starting on Monday, April 30th (M-F, 9AM-5PM).  All trains board 10 minutes prior to train times.  Everyone boarding the train will need a ticket.
