Celebrate Art on the Avenue!


Art on the Avenue celebrates Alexandria’s diversity through the arts, in the scenic Del Ray neighborhood.

Held on Saturday, October 5, this dynamic festival welcomes over 50,000 visitors yearly, as they stroll down Mt. Vernon Avenue in Del Ray between Bellefonte and Hume Avenues.

Mingle with more than 300 artists (jewelers, silversmiths, beaders, woodworkers, pottery makers, soap crafters, glass makers, unique painters, sculptures, fabric artists); musicians (Irish, folk, rock n’ roll, country, and more); and food vendors (hot dogs, BBQ, Indian, crab cakes, chocolate bananas dipped on a stick, and homemade cider donuts).

Don’t forget to bring the kids! Activities include stuff-your-own scarecrow, paint-a-pumpkin, and lotus flower design, among others. Learn more at
