MTP at the Fall Jubilee 

The Manassas Tea Party will again have a presence at the annual Manassas Fall Jubilee.  Located in historic downtown Manassas this year's event is on Saturday, October 4 from 10 AM - 5 PM.  With thousands attending this is a great opportunity for us to have outreach into the community.

 

We will be handing out our new informational flyers on our organization, giving away balloons, signing up new members, and holding a fundraising raffle with donated gift cards from businesses all over Manassas.   Stop by to see us and to buy a few raffle tickets.  When we know the exact location of our booth we will update this post. 

 

The Fall Jubilee is a free to the public, community event and is scheduled rain or shine.  This year’s Jubilee will include live music and entertainment for both kids and adults; craft and community booths; wine tastings; a Beer Garden; lumberjack performances; farmer’s market; children’s rides and activities, and a pumpkin patch.  Something for everyone in the family!

A Great Debate It Was!

 

 

The Article V Great Debate is now one for the history books.   We thank the multitudes who attended, our organizers who put the event together, NOVA Manassas campus for the theater, but most especially the debaters Delegate Bob Marshall, Mike Farris, and in particular moderator Ken Cuccinelli.

Turnout to the debate was fantastic.  Attendees traveled from all points around the state such as Richmond and the Shenandoah Valley. With 180-200 present, every seat was filled, people stood in the aisles and the back of the theater, and even spilled into the theater lobby for the opportunity to witness the Article V Great Debate. This response is a testiment to the concern Commonwealth citizens have with the direction of our nation.

We hope everyone who attended came away better informed about the merits and risks of states convening a convention to amend our Constitution. Certainly  Delegate Marshall and Michael Farris did a great job of presenting both positions.  The Manassas Tea Party hosted this debate as part of our educational mission and did not conduct the debate to promote either position.
