Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Our Festival is a competitive, juried, outdoor event that showcases the best contemporary fine art and craft from around the nation, typically attracting 30,000+ patrons. Held in the affluent area of Northern Virginia, thirty minutes outside of Washington DC, Reston Town Center is an easily accessible, upscale, elegant, shopping destination.
We are committed to elevating the profile of our Festival and have doubled our marketing budget for 2015 to reach new audiences and promote interest from collectors. To enhance regional appeal and promote an art-focused atmosphere for the Festival, we are also partnering with internationally-recognized earth artist Patrick Dougherty. Mr. Dougherty will construct a site-specific, immersive, temporary installation in Town Square Park, which will be on view during the Festival and will be promoted as part of the Festival activities.
Our Festival places the emphasis on the art and the artists with ample artist amenities.
We recognize that our artists invest time, effort and money in us and we strive to make sure that everyone’s Festival experience is excellent.
