King Street Art Festival

Presented by Howard Alan Events

King Street Art Festival

Always dedicated to its incredible arts and culture, Alexandria will welcome back the 12th annual King Street Art Festival this fall, which transforms the city's historic main street into a world-class outdoor art gallery. Festival booths line King Street between Washington and Union streets, featuring over six blocks of artwork by more than 200 artists from the US and abroad.

At this community festival, art enthusiasts discover spectacular paintings, life-size sculptures, jewelry, photography, ceramics and more, offering extraordinary art for every taste. More than $15 million in art will be on display, providing visitors with the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind wares and meet the artists behind the work, hearing firsthand what inspires them.

Plus, enjoy a variety of local activities and performances throughout the weekend, including live music, hands-on activities and art happenings. The Art League's popular Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser returns, featuring 1,000 hand-made ceramic bowls and local artisanal ice cream from Artfully Chocolate, all for only $15 per bowl.

On Saturday, the Torpedo Factory Art Center presents an ice carving demonstration by resident artist Tatyana Schremko in the main hall and live music at the marina. The Alexandria Office of the Arts and the Alexandria Arts Forum are planning music performances and the appearance of a mobile art lab with hands-on projects. 

With this popular festival spanning two days, visitors take advantage of luxurious accommodations just steps from King Street and transform their festival experience into a creativity-filled weekend.

Saturday, September 13, 2014 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. | Sunday, September 14, 2014 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Old Town Alexandria on King Street from Washington Street to the Potomac River waterfront
