Fall Festival Season in Alexandria

Changing leaves aren't the only things coloring Alexandria's streets in the fall--come autumn, the city brims with art-filled festivities, flavorful eats and on-trend fashion all along the Potomac River. Kicking off the fall arts season, the King Street Art Festival brings more than 165 artists to Alexandria, Virginia.

Fall flavors pepper Alexandria restaurants, featuring gourmet cuisine and locally-sourced beer and wine. And as the year's most fashionable season sweeps in, the city's independent boutiques keep up with the latest trends. Always dedicated to its vibrant arts and culture, Alexandria especially shines in the fall, the city's most colorful season--with luxurious hotels just steps from festival venues, galleries, boutiques and restaurants, art enthusiasts transform a culture-centric afternoon into a creativity-filled weekend.
