South Street Art Festival Returns to Downtown Oct. 12-14

Imagine spending a lovely October afternoon or evening strolling up and down South Street in Downtown Arlington, taking in beautiful fine art including wood, metal, canvas, fiber, glass and more. As you browse, you visit with renowned artists, enjoy a glass of wine curated by Urban Alchemy Coffee + Wine Bar, and grab a bite to eat and meet friends at the many nearby restaurants and pubs.

For the sixth straight year, that's exactly what you can do, thanks to the South Street Art Festival. SSAF returns to Downtown Arlington this Friday through Sunday, October 12-14, 2018.
