With rain in the forecast on Saturday, plans for this weekend's events in Del Ray have changed slightly....

The Tot Rock Fest will take place on SATURDAY, MAY 13 as planned, but will be moved INDOORS to the Mount Vernon Recreation Center  (2701 Commonwealth Avenue, Alexandria).  Join us for an amazing day of music, movement, and making a difference for children in and around Del Ray, featuring Rainbow Rock Band, Rocknoceros, The Great Zucchini, and more!   The event is free and open to all; festival attendees are encouraged to bring new or used musical instruments for Now I Play Along Too.  For more information, along with a complete schedule, visit

La Bella Strada will take place on SUNDAY, MAY 14 from 9am to 3pm. La Bella Strada is a modern street painting festival that originates from an ancient Italian art form. Organized The Del Ray Montessori School parents, this unique event takes place along Mount Vernon Avenue and brings artists, energetic volunteers, and local businesses together to enliven our cottage neighborhood with vibrant colors, crowd-drawing masterpieces, and a one-of-a-kind experience of witnessing the creation of large-scale chalk paintings directly on the sidewalks.  The event is free and open to all.

The Mount Vernon Community School PTA Garden Party will be rescheduled to SATURDAY, MAY 20 from 8am to 2pm. Come by the Mount Vernon Community School playground to shop herb and veggie plants, cut flowers, baked goodies and kids’ crafts -- all proceeds will go toward the MVCS playground project.

And, of course, the Del Ray Farmer's Market is rain or shine, every Saturday from 8am to 12pm!

See you on the Avenue this weekend!
