The Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival, now in its 28th year, is one of the “top five” outdoor art festivals in the country with a long-standing reputation for showcasing high-quality hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind artwork in a dynamic outdoor setting that draws affluent and knowledgeable clientele. This unique event is presented in Reston Town Center, Friday, May 17–Sunday, May 19, 10am–5pm daily, and attracts approximately 30,000 patrons annually from the Washington, DC metropolitan region and beyond. The Festival benefits Greater Reston Arts Center, a 501c3 nonprofit, located in Reston Town Center.

Opening with Festival Friday on May 17, we have expanded the Festival experience with a focus on the Reston workforce. Reston Town Center merchants will be offering unique Festival Friday deals, that day only. Festival programs will once again be available on-site with almost $100 worth of restaurant coupons for a $5 donation to GRACE; it will pay for itself over lunch!

The Festival Party, made possible by The M Group Architects and The Counter Custom Burgers, will be held on Saturday night, and will celebrate the Festival artists with the announcement of the 2019 Awards of Excellence as selected by our jurors and sponsored by Boston Properties. By making the Awards of Excellence the focus of the evening we will shine an even brighter spotlight on our participating artists.  This unique event is by invitation only. Become a contributing supporter today to receive your complimentary invitation(s) and help #MakeArtHappen!
