|Location||2301 Mt Vernon Ave

|Description:||Art on the Avenue is a multi-cultural arts festival celebrating our community's diversity through the arts in the Del Ray neighborhood in Alexandria, Virginia. This festival is held on the first Saturday in October, rain or shine!|
Every year, over 50,000 visitors stroll down Mt. Vernon Avenue in Del Ray, Alexandria, between Bellefonte and Hume Avenues - people are greeted by over 300 artists (jewelers - silversmith & beaders, woodworkers, pottery makers, soap crafters, glass makers, unique painters, sculptures, fabric artists), musicians (Irish, folk, rock n' roll, country and more), and food vendors (hot dogs, BBQ, Indian, crab cakes, chocolate bananas dipped on a stick, home made cider donuts). Kids activities have always been a vital part of the festival -- stuff your own scarecrow, paint a pumpkin, lotus flower design, weave screen art, to name a few.
