How to Meet Us

We meet the second Saturday of every month at 9:30 a.m. at the Washington Town Hall, 485 Gay Street, Washington, Virginia, 22747, unless otherwise posted.

Democrats, friends, and members of the public are always welcomed warmly. We try to have a guest speaker at each meeting to address current topics of interest, and we work on a number of activities in the community to foster understanding, cooperation, and involvement in our democracy. Each meeting is followed by social conversation.

The Rappahannock County Democrats are partnering with the Leslie Cockburn campaign for canvassing for the 2018 election. There’s an upcoming canvassing launch on June 23. Please plan to join Nick and other area Democrats for this launch. For more information contact Nick Steele at or Mary-Sherman Willis at Message from Nick follows:

“I wanted to give you a heads up that our field team has identified a few locations around the district to do some preliminary canvassing on June 23rd. We are especially interested in launching in Rappahannock. The plan is to recruit for a 9 am and 12 pm canvass on Saturday, June 23rd to launch from 1047 Zachary Taylor Hwy, Huntley, VA. The objective of this canvass is to test our canvassing systems and to begin to ID voters. We would love your support that day as we want to make sure our efforts are coordinated. Please let me know if you’d be interested in participating and if you have any feedback for our team before we begin to recruit.”

Amissville Firemen’s Parade @ Amissville Fire and Rescue
Jun 28 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Come join Leslie Cockburn and the Rappahannock County Democrats in the big parade on Thursday June 28 at 6 p.m.

We’ll start to assemble at 5 pm at the Amissville Firehouse (14711 Lee Hwy, Amissville, VA), where you can park your car. There will be a carnival set up right next door, so you can’t miss it.

Once you get there, just walk down the parade line until you find our float—a truck pulling a haywagon, with balloons and signs for Leslie and Tim Kaine and the RCDC. There will be lots of people wearing blue polo shirts.

If you can’t or prefer not to walk, there will be a shuttle from the parking place to our spot. You can also ride on the wagon. The parade takes off at 6 pm and will last about an hour.

We’ll have a blue shirt for you. Kids are warmly welcome.
