Rail Fest

Rail Fest
Model train enthusiasts and families looking for some weekend fun are sure to enjoy our second Woodstock Rail Fest event with more than a dozen trains on display around the historic Woodstock Square!
Many local businesses and Square venues will be host to a variety of model train setups provided by regional collectors and clubs. Our very own MD Trains is spearheading this event with local businesses to celebrate the rich train history of Woodstock and share the love of model trains.
Although this first time event will be slightly different than it would have been pre-pandemic, we are sure it will offer a day of fun for all who attend.
Social distancing, masks and strict observance of business capacity limits will be adhered to in an effort to keep all attendees healthy and safe. Please be kind and patient with local businesses and volunteers adhering to these policies for your safety. Hand sanitizer will also be available.
Trains will be displayed in store windows around the square for easy viewing from outside as you stroll the Square. Outdoor and larger indoor venues with train displays will have more capacity for viewing up close with social distancing but there may be lines for viewing.
Remember many smaller stores have capacity limits as low as 5, so we ask that you limit indoor viewing time in these locations to allow the stores to serve customers as well.
From 8 AM to 1 PM on Saturday the Woodstock Farmer’s Market will also be on the Square, so we hope you will give them a visit as well!
