One of our favorite Del Ray events is taking place this weekend. Art on the Avenue is a multi-cultural arts festival that will be held Saturday, October 6th from 10am to 6pm – rain or shine!
Stroll down Mt. Vernon Avenue and view booths with 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).
There are plenty of kids activities as well – stuff your own scarecrow, paint a pumpkin, lotus flower design, and weave screen art.
