Two Hour Delayed Opening

Two Hour Delayed Opening

Two-Hour Delayed Opening – Festival opens at 12 noon.

If we’ve declared a Two Hour Delayed Opening, then the Fall Festival will open at 12 noon instead of 10 AM.

If we’ve declared a two-hour delayed opening, then the Fall Festival will open at 12 noon instead of 10 AM. If the forecast changes or conditions deteriorate, it is possible that the Fall Festival could end up being closed; please check back at 11 AM to confirm.

The Festival Market will be open normal hours despite the festival’s delayed opening.

Please note that when the Fall Festival is open, even a small rain shower will result in the closing of some attractions, at least temporarily. Most of our slides do not work when wet. Also, if the Fall Festival does open and then weather deteriorates, the festival may end up closing early. If this happens, rain checks are available for anyone whose visit is curtailed.

If you were planning to visit the Fall Festival today…

you can wait until 11 to confirm that the festival will be opening at noon, or you can wait until the weather is more cooperative another day.

If you have already purchased online admission tickets for today…

you can still use them when the Fall Festival opens at 12 noon. If you prefer to visit a different day, the type of ticket you purchased and the new date you visit will determine whether your tickets are valid or will require an adjustment. This can be handled in person, or you can request a refund online.

If you have a group visit planned on a day with a Two Hour Delayed Opening, you can:

Come out to the Fall Festival as scheduled (all-day and afternoon events).

Pavilion Rental Packages and Afternoon Party Place Table reservations will not be impacted. Please ensure everyone in your group is aware of any changes you make to the timing of your event.

Re-schedule your Group.

Please contact Reservations or call: (703) 830-4121 immediately to arrange or confirm a rain date for your group visit. Depending on availability, morning Party Place Table reservations may possibly be rescheduled for that afternoon after the Fall Festival opens.

Cancel your Group.

If you cancel your visit because of today’s rainy weather, there is no cancellation penalty as long as you call or email us at least 2 hours before your scheduled arrival time. If you cancel with less than 2 hours’ notice (or if you just don’t show up), you will forfeit your deposit as outlined in our Group Reservation policies:
