The arts are alive in Fairfax, and nowhere is it more present than at the Fairfax Spotlight on the Arts Festival, to be held from April 21 through May 9 in and around the City of Fairfax. The 32nd Annual Fairfax Spotlight on the Arts Festival starts on April 21st  with a glittering evening at Old Town Hall celebrating three decades of arts in the City of Fairfax. Sponsored by the City of Fairfax in cooperation with George Mason University and the arts community of Fairfax, Spotlight on the Arts continues its commitment to support and encourage the awareness of cultural opportunities in the greater Fairfax community. It has grown into a significant three-week festival and is now considered one of Virginia’s foremost arts festivals. With outstanding music performances from leading musicians, quality arts exhibitions, dance (both classical and modern) stimulating theater performances, community activities and events including “Artful Living” an Art Show in association with Britepaths, and the hits of last year including Fashion in Motion. This year’s Festival of youth, of music, of dance and so much more all highlight the emerging vibrant art scene in historic Old Town Fairfax.
