If you're an art lover, you won't want to miss one of the D.C. area's most impressive art festivals. The 16th Annual King Street Art Festival in Old Town Alexandria takes place on September 22-23 and is free to the public.
Those familiar with Old Town know its dedication to preserving the art and culture of the historic city. Stroll down King Street and you'll find dozens of unique galleries, independent boutiques, and restaurants. Visit the Torpedo Factory to see 82 working artist studios and explore unique galleries and exhibits. The city is bursting with art and inspiration.
Keeping with the tradition of celebrating the vibrant art scene in Old Town, the King Street Art Festival will bring the work of over 200 artists from around the world to Alexandria. The festival will transform King Street into an outdoor art gallery spanning 6 blocks, allowing visitors the opportunity to purchase one-of-a-kind pieces and meet the artists behind the work.
Enjoy the day strolling through the streets while browsing paintings, sculptures, jewelry, ceramics, photography, and more created by local, national and international artists. Plus, we are thrilled to participate in the festival this year as an exhibitor. Stop by the Robinson Landing booth to learn about the exciting archaeology finds discovered onsite and the vision for the Old Town waterfront.
The art festival will be held at 220 King Street in Alexandria, VA. It is open Saturday, September 22 from 10am - 7pm and Sunday, September 23 from 10am - 5pm. We look forward to seeing you!
