Looking for things to do in Woodbridge? Editor's recommendations.
Happy Weekend! While you can always check out what is going on in Woodbridge by viewing the daily calendar we encourage you to add your fall festivals, pumpkin patches, haunted houses and all other events to the calendar for Woodbridge to see.
Here are the editor's choices for things to do this weekend while enjoying the lovely fall weather.
- Thursday, Oct. 7 was Patch's Give5 Volunteer day, and in the spirit of volunteerism why not use some of your Saturday to give back to the community? We recommend checking out the Occoquan Bay Refuge Festival on Saturday, Oct. 9 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
- Help out the homeless community on Sunday, Oct. 10 by participating in the Woodbridge Walk and Clean-Up for the Homeless Prevention Center (14945 Jefferson Davis Hwy, Woodbridge, VA 22191). To participate, there is a $25 fee for adults and $15 fee for children (includes T-Shirt), proceeds go to the shelter. For more information, view the listing here.
- The Castaway Repertory Theater will be performing "The Miracle Worker," a play about Helen Keller and her teacher Annie Sullivan on Oct. 8 and 9 at the A.J. Ferlazzo Building in Woodbridge. Tickets are $14, and the show begins at 8 p.m. For more information on this show, click the calendar listing here.
- Venture into Old Town Occoquan, just down the road, on Saturday, Oct. 9 for a unique art show hosted by Art A La Carte.
