27th Annual Art on the Avenue

2900 Mt Vernon Ave
Alexandria, Virginia 22301

Art on the Avenue is a multicultural arts festival held in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia, celebrating our community’s diversity through the arts.

Every year, more than 50,000 visitors stroll down Mt. Vernon Avenue in Del Ray, Alexandria, between Bellefonte and Hume Avenues — people are greeted by more than 300 artists (jewelers, silversmiths & beaders, woodworkers, pottery makers, soap crafters, glass makers, unique painters, sculptors, fabric artists & more), musicians (Irish, folk, rock-n-roll, country, and more), and food vendors (hot dogs, BBQ, Indian, Mexican, pizza, crab cakes, chocolate bananas dipped on sticks, homemade cider donuts, and more). Kids’ activities have always been a vital part of the festival — stuff your own scarecrow, paint a pumpkin, lotus flower design, and weave screen art, to name a few.
