Haymarket Va Events … One of the best things about living and working in the town of historic Haymarket, Virginia is the highly festive Town Events that are held right in downtown Haymarket. The annual Haymarket Day and Parade draws thousands of community members, performers and vendors each September. However, the celebrating doesn’t end there. There are many seasonal events held year-round that families, friends and neighbors all come out for. These spirited events may include live music, dancing, children’s activities, a variety of food and more!
Our office, EXIT Heritage Realty, is located right in the heart of all this action. You’ll find our friendly agents out on Haymarket Day handing out thousands of balloons to parade spectators and free, iced-cold water bottles to anyone who passes by. We love Haymarket Day! That’s one of the reasons we were voted Best Real Estate Agency 2017 in Haymarket!
We don’t sponsor these events, but as a service to the local community and to anyone thinking about moving to the Haymarket or Gainesville area, I have put together a list of the events with any information that is publicly available. Most events are held by the Town of Haymarket, visit the Town of Haymarket’s website for more information.
