September 21, 2016 9:00 AM | Pat Miller (Administrator)

   The 21st annual Art on the Avenue festival will take place Saturday, Oct. 1 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria. The event is free and open to all.

     Held each fall on Mount Vernon Avenue between Hume and Bellefonte Avenues, Art on the Avenue celebrates the diversity of the Del Ray community. The event, voted by Virginia Living readers as one of the top arts events in Northern Virginia, is entirely volunteer-run, with support from the local business community.

     Art on the Avenue strives to reflect the vibrant mix of the Del Ray community through the artists and their work. The event draws more than 50,000 people annually from throughout the metropolitan Washington area.

     The multicultural arts and music festival features over 350 area artists and craftspeople selling their original works, international food, and four stages of live music, free children's craft activities and entertainment, and a pie-baking contest.  New this year, Bean Creative field (located in the 2200 block of Mount Vernon Avenue) will feature artists demonstrations throughout the day.

     Free DASH transportation will be provided from the Braddock Road Metro Station to the festival. For more information, visit
