2018 Spotlight on the Arts Festival

April 20th - May 12th


The 33rd Annual Fairfax Spotlight on the Arts Festival starts on April 20th with a glittering evening at Old Town Hall celebrating more than three decades of the arts in the City of Fairfax. Sponsored by the City of Fairfax in cooperation with George Mason University and the business and arts community in 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 major three-week arts festival and is now considered one of Virginia’s foremost arts festivals. With outstanding theater performances, superb art shows, installations and exhibitions, excellent music performances from leading musicians of all genres, dance (both classical and modern), community, business activities and events including Arts mean Business in association with local businesses, “Artful Living” an Art Show in association with partners—Britepaths.

This year’s Festival of youth, of music, of dance and so much more—are all highlighting the vibrant art scene in Downtown Fairfax. We are delighted to bring you so many exceptional events in the Spotlight Spring Festival in 2018. In the spirit of a festival all participating groups endeavor to bring you the best arts and cultural events on offer during this coming year’s program—so make a date and come and enjoy the festival!

Most importantly we will further our mission to raise funds for the Spotlight on the Arts Scholarships for local arts students to attend George Mason University to study all aspects of the Arts. During 2016 we awarded our 100th Scholarship - truly a milestone achievement! We are excited to be a major Arts sponsor and enabling so many students to realize their dreams in the Arts.
