Three festivals in two weeks! Can I do it? I guess we’ll find out.
September 28: Barracks Row Fall Festival, DC
I’ve done this festival before, but it sounds like organizers have taken it to a new level this year. There will be an outdoor Beer Garden, a petting zoo with llamas, goats and hedgehogs (!) and an Instagram photo competition. And (of course) me, and lots of other awesome vendors.
October 5: Art on the Avenue, Alexandria VA
This is a lovely, big, sprawling festival with 300 artists and crafters, lots of yummy food, music and great activities for the kids. Oh, and PIE. It runs 10-6 and I advise coming early before the crowd gets really thick. I’ll be between Windsor and Custis Streets on Mt. Vernon Avenue.
October 6: MPA ArtFest, McLean, VA
This is a smaller and more exclusive show with 50 artists in McLean Central Park. The McLean project for the Arts does a great job, with a beautiful setting, great food, and lots of fantastic art, jewelry and accessories. Definitely worth a visit.
Oh, and I made some very cool new clayboard neuron pieces (see above). I probably won't be bringing them to festivals unless requested - they're a little fragile - so have a look in my online shop.
