Art on the Avenue

Art on the Avenue, the region’s top multicultural arts festival, takes place Saturday, Oct. 7from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria.
Held each fall on Mount Vernon Avenue between Hume and Bellefonte Avenues, Art on the Avenue strives to reflect the diversity of the Del Ray community through the artists and their work. This year’s festival will feature over 350 local and regional artists, live music, international food, children’s activities, a pie-baking contest, and more.
The event, voted by Virginia Living readers as the best art festival in Northern Virginia, is volunteer-run, with support from the local business community. Art on the Avenue is free and open to all. For more information and to sign up to volunteer, visit
