Columbia Gas of Va is the Official Sponsor of the Culpeper Fiesta!

Event Details

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that the Culpeper Fiesta previously set for Friday, September 18th, 2020 has been canceled due to the Corvid-19 outbreak.  Check back next year for information about the 2021 Culpeper Fiesta.

The Culpeper Fiesta takes place in the heart of downtown Culpeper for 4 hours, 6 pm to 10 pm each year, on the third Friday in September. Plan to bring your whole family down to the Depot (109 Commerce St., Culpeper, VA) for a night of good food and wonderful entertainment!  Like us on Facebook to stay in touch.

There is no admission fee!  Free activities will include children’s crafts, piñatas, zumba led by MFA Studios in Locust Grove, and live music.  Mark Harman with Harmany DJ’s will be playing a variety of Latino dance music.  See schedule of events below.

The food, while not free, is reasonably priced so you can afford to feed the whole family. Food vendors will provide a full selection of traditional Hispanic dishes.  There will also be dessert items, flavored ice, and beverages.

Free health screenings will be offered, including confidential HIV testing by FAHAAS.  Free flu shots will be administered by Walgreens.  Complimentary children’s ID’s will be offered by the Culpeper Town Police at the Food Closet location at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church.  Kids can participate in children’s yoga, presented by Pranapiloga, while they wait!
