The Recreation & Parks Department is excited to announce that registration is now LIVE for the 2024 Ft. Clifton Festival happening May 11-12 at Ft. Clifton Park. Join us as an Exhibitor or Sponsor for this year's event.

Our 2024 Fort Clifton Arts & Crafts Festival will be held May 11 & 12 (10:30am to 4:30pm) at Fort Clifton Park in Colonial Heights VA, and we hope you will consider exhibiting at our 48th annual event. We typically have a great response to our discounted early registration fee – reaching space capacity by early-March. Therefore, we encourage interested exhibitors to take advantage of our March 1 early registration period.

Please be reminded that all entries must be made or designed by the person submitting the registration. Over the past few years, we have received numerous complaints from patrons and exhibitors regarding a number of exhibitors selling merchandise that does not meet this criteria. Be advised that anyone found to be selling merchandise not made or designed by the person submitting the registration will be immediately removed from the festival without refund of fees and will be banned from future Fort Clifton Festivals.
