Fairfax Art Walk | Fairfax Parks and Recreation Art & Culture
Fairfax Art Walk is a program developed by Fairfax Parks and Recreation as part of the initiative to develop and highlight the role of the arts in Fairfax. For the Art Walk, they have partnered with Fairfax Volunteers. Our featured artists come from all disciplines including painting and visual arts, maker arts, music, dance, and the written word. Artists partner with and show their work at area businesses and merchants central to downtown for this annual event. Family friendly, we also feature a scavenger hunt. Participants can enter to win prizes provided by our area businesses and merchants.
Parks and Recreation Commission (PARC), under the leadership of Anne Mannes, is committed to making arts more visible and supported in Fairfax. Spearheaded by the Fairfax Recreation and Community Services department, we are building some exciting partnerships with Fairfax Volunteers and the Chamber of Commerce, among others, to bring the community art programs and events. The Art Walk is just one of their initiatives. Learn more ➜
