On the weekend of September 21-22, the 17th annual Alexandria King Street Art Festival will bring art, music, food, and fun to the Potomac waterfront. Six blocks of King Street will be blocked off for the festival, in which more than $15 million dollars’ worth of original art will be on display this year. You’ll find paintings, hand-crafted jewelry, sculpture, wood block prints, ceramics, and much more. As you browse the artist booths, you’ll be able to chat with the artists themselves, which is a unique opportunity for art lovers.
Whether you plan to purchase something special to add to your home, or simply want to enjoy this massive (and free) outdoor art exhibit, the Alexandria King Street Art Festival has something for everyone. Booths are open from 10 am to 5 pm on Saturday and from 10 am to 7 pm on Sunday. Visit the website for a full schedule of events.
