Fall is right around the corner…and so is the sixth annual Alexandria Festival of the Arts.
The festival runs this year on Saturday, September 13 and Sunday, September 14. As usual, the festival will occupy the section of King Street between the Potomac and Washington Street, so casual drivers of the area should consider alternate routes through downtown.
Featuring over 150 artists in a variety of medium – from original paintings and sculptures to photography, glass and ceramics – the festival gives the public opportunity to browse, meet and purchase original art directly from the artists.
The Torpedo Factory Art Center is also part of the fun, with artist demonstrations including pottery, painting and jewelry making, plus other hands-on activities and a modern dance performance.
The festival is produced by Howard Alan Events and is ranked as one of the top 100 art fairs in the country. For more information, visit the city’s press release here or the Howard Alan Events webpage.
