The Mount Airy ArtsFest was conceived in 2018 by the Mt. Airy Arts Alliance. The intention of the festival is to celebrate all types of art: visual, performance, music, and theatre. The ArtsFest was created for families, with an array of activities for those of all ages. In addition, there is a large art vendor area showcasing unique, handcrafted works of art.
This year’s event will be held at the beautiful Watkins Park in Mount Airy, Maryland. Handicap parking is available in the park; all other pedestrians are encouraged to take the free shuttle from the Mt. Airy Carnival Grounds, or find parking at a nearby school or in the downtown Mt. Airy area and take the 1/3rd mile Rails to Trails (trailhead behind Blossom & Basket Boutique).
