MPAartfest 2022 Cancelled

MPAartfest 2022 Cancelled

McLean Project for the Arts has made the difficult decision to cancel its 2022 MPAartfest, originally scheduled for Sunday, October 2 in McLean Central Park. The decision was made in conjunction with the Fairfax County Park Authority and local weather experts, in anticipation of the 2-3 inches of rain projected to inundate the area this weekend.
