The Fall Foliage Festival is Coming to Waynesboro, Virginia

“Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It’s a gift to the world and every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got.” –Steven Pressfield A much-anticipated annual autumn art festival is coming to Waynesboro, Virginia with a flurry of artisan fanfare. The 45th Annual Virginia Fall Foliage Festival Art Show will be held on October 8-9, 2016, and will see downtown Waynesboro transformed into an outdoor art gallery with creations of over 150 artists from all over the United States. Are you a lover of photography? A watercolor fanatic? A jewelry obsessive? The Fall Foliage Festival has these offerings and a whole lot more. From sculptures to printmaking to pottery and glasswork, a host of different mediums are represented among the more than 200 booths at the festival. Besides the fine arts and crafts, you’ll also have a chance to sample some local craft beer and gourmet food while musicians accompany you in the background. This festival is the perfect opportunity to find gifts for those hard-to-buy-for people in your lives. Every piece is unique and hand-crafted, so you know you’re going home with something special. (It’s also a great chance to support the local community and help out small businesses!) Downtown Waynesboro is only minutes away from The Iris Inn, so grab your room, cottage, or cabin now, and prepare for an art extravaganza.
