Historic Old Town Alexandria will transform into an art-lover's paradise during the 15th Annual Alexandria King Street Art Festival. Two hundred local and national artists will display their works from across the nation in a prestigious show encompassing fine jewelry, exquisite works of art and hand-crafted apparel and decor. During this community festival, art enthusiasts discover spectacular paintings, life-sized sculptures, jewelry, glasswork, photography, ceramics and more. More than $15 million in art will be on display during the two-day, outdoor art gallery event. All artists will be on site for the duration of the festival, allowing visitors to discover the inspiration behind each original piece.

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 1,400 handmade ceramic bowls and local artisanal ice cream, all for only $15 per bowl. There is even more art to be found across Union Street at the Torpedo Factory Art Center. Visitors can come inside to explore 82 working studios and seven galleries filled with handmade work by more than 165 local artists. On both days, festival-goers can meet some of the Torpedo Factory artists at Market Square and watch them at their craft.

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.
