About the Program
Since 1997, the Virginia Arts Festival has transformed the cultural scene in southeastern Virginia, presenting great performers from around the world to local audiences and making this historic, recreation-rich region a cultural destination for visitors from across the United States and around the world. The Festival has presented numerous U.S. and regional premieres, and regularly commissions new works of music, dance, and theater from some of today’s most influential composers, choreographers and playwrights. The Festival’s arts education programs reach tens of thousands of area schoolchildren each year through student matinees, in-school performances, artists’ residencies, master classes and demonstrations.
This spring Virginia Arts Festival enters its third decade with a star-studded schedule of performances and events.
Join us for our March Member Briefing for a peek into the Festival’s 21st season. Rob Cross, Executive Director will share season highlights and Scott Jackson, General Manager will provide some plans for the Virginia International Tattoo.
Parking is available in the Bank Street Garage, across the street from Virginia Arts Festival, Scope Garage or MacArthur Center North Parking Deck.
