MPAartfest Success!

Sincere thanks to everyone who joined us on Sunday, October 6 for our 15th annual MPAartfest. We believe it was the most well-attended in event history, with well over 10,000 visitors throughout the day!

On behalf of the MPA staff and Board of Directors, thank you to everyone who helped make this amazing day possible–our many community sponsors, our hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers, and, of course, all of those art lovers in attendance.

In addition to the 40+ accomplished and varied artists curated into the event, special highlights included a full day of fabulous music in the gazebo, produced again by our music impresario, Ken Avis. We also thank the many local service organizations and non-profits who participated, and the  students who contributed to the Children’s ArtWalk–again beautifully organized by the New Dominion Women’s Club.

Our generous sponsors made the day possible, including our Lead Community Sponsor McLean Community Center and our event co-sponsor Fairfax County Park Authority.

MPA is an independent non-profit 501(C)3 organization. Funds raised at MPAartfest via sponsorships and individual donations support MPA exhibitions and programs throughout the year. Click here to learn how you can support MPA.

Musical Performances

In recent years–under the enthusiastic leadership of MPAartfest Music Curator Ken Avis–music has become an integral and much-loved part of MPAartfest. The 15th Annual MPAartfest continued this tradition with performances throughout the day by some of the DC-area’s most celebrated musicians.
