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, visitors can delight in interactive art activities and The Art League's much-loved "Ice Cream Bowl Fundraiser."

 

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. Find more information on booking your hotel stay here.
