Join us in Historic Downtown Manassas for our first multi-day art show this May! The Much Ado About Art Festival will run from Friday, May 5 through Sunday May 7 in downtown Manassas.

Friday, May 5:
Gallery Walk is taking it up a notch this year! Artists will be juried to receive a place inside one of our 20+ downtown merchants for the evening from 5-9pm. These high quality artists are the kick off and just a small taste of what is sure to be a great weekend.

Saturday, May 6:
Stop by the Pavilion from 9am-2pm for Manassas Reads! This literary art segment will be providing free books for all. And there may be a few surprise guests. Stop along Battle Street starting at 10am to enjoy Battle of the Artists as artists create chalk art. From 5-9pm the streets will be closed once again and our 20+ downtown merchants will again feature our top juried artists for the evening. From 7-9pm, enjoy a free concert at the Harris Pavilion featuring Kitty & the Fat Cats.

Sunday, May 7:
Sunday is community day! On Sunday, you will be able to enjoy performances from local dance troops, choirs, and more!
