King Street Art Festival

Presented by Howard Alan Events

September 19 & 20, 2015

Always dedicated to its incredible arts and culture, Alexandria will welcome back the 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, all for only $15 per bowl.    

The Alexandria Mobile Art Lab celebrates its first birthday with a disco dance party at Market Square Saturday night of the art festival beginning at 7 pm.  The Mobile Art Lab will be stationed on Royal Street near Market Square both days of the festival, on Saturday and Sunday.

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.
