2017 Spotlight on the Arts Festival

April 21st - May 9th


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 Our Daily Bread, 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.

We will host not for profit partner, Our Daily Bread and the 3rd Annual “Artful Living” and support “ Hawaiian Holiday” with local business Twins Ace Hardware and raising funds for Children’s Miracle Network.

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.
