This October 13 & 14, the Fall Foliage Art Show and the Virginia Street Arts Festival team up to fill the streets of Waynesboro with live mural painting, fine art sales, public art installations, plus beer, food, and music all weekend.

The Fall Foliage Art Show is a 48 year tradition that brings over 150 juried fine artists to a Main Street festival, transforming downtown into a lively outdoor market of paintings, pottery, jewelry, woodworking, and more. From 10am to 5pm Saturday and noon to 5pm Sunday, traveling world class artists will share their stories, sell their work, and help decorate your home with memories for years to come.

Sharing the streets, the Virginia Street Arts Festival will bring two renowned muralists to transform a vacant brick building into a celebratory splash of color and culture. Watch artists at work 30 feet in the air, help the Blue Ridge Children’s Museum paint giant cubes for an interactive public art installation, or join chalk artists leaving their marks on the streets and sidewalks of downtown Waynesboro.

One block over in Lumos Plaza, find the best eats at food trucks and the festival beer garden. Live music performers will be announced in the weeks leading up to the festival, so check back often for musician and guest artist announcements.

WHEN: October 13 (10am to 5pm) and October 14 (noon to 5pm)

WHERE: The two festivals will converge in downtown Waynesboro, running from the intersection of Arch Avenue and Main Street up the hill towards the Wayne Theatre Performing Arts Center. Bring your walking shoes to take in the full effect — multiple blocks will be filled with art and activities.

COST: Both events are free to the public. Bring your wallet to purchase art, food, beer, and more from festival vendors.
