Manassas Railway Festival

The 2020 Manassas Railway Festival has been canceled. Please check back for details on the 2021 event.


The Manassas Railway Festival will return in 2021 as it occurs yearly on the first weekend in June. 

Manassas Junction was the focal point of both the First and Second Battles of Manassas during the Civil War and the site of the nation's first military railroad, connecting Manassas and Centreville. The Manassas Railway Festival is a celebration of the rich railway history that Manassas has to offer.

Board the Scenic Excursion Train at the Manassas Train Depot and enjoy a leisurely ride to Clifton and back. One train departs every hour from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Beginning in May, you may buy your tickets from Historic Manassas.
