fine art + craft + performance + music
Join us in celebrating the 26th Annual Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival. Since 1991, the nonprofit Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) has produced the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival, and it has become its largest annual fundraiser. Participating artists uniformly view the festival as one of the “top five” outdoor art festivals in the country and extend high praise to the level of hospitality they receive from volunteers and involvement from a community that appreciates the high quality of the art presented. The festival is free and open to the public, although $5 donations per adult in support of GRACE are encouraged and appreciated. In return for the donation, each patron receives a robust festival program containing more than $50 worth of dining certificates, a map of the festival and complete artist listing.
Festival attendees will enjoy viewing inspiring and innovative art in a wide variety of media, interacting directly with artists from around the country, and exploring their own creativity in the Family Art Park. Thanks to a dynamic partnership with Reston Town Center Association and Boston Properties, all interior streets in Reston Town Center are reserved for pedestrians only during the Festival. The resulting 11-block art walk features more than 200 of the nation’s best artists and offers 30,000-plus art enthusiasts the opportunity to view and purchase original art directly from the participating artists. Reston Community Center is a proud sponsor of the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival.
