Once a year the community gathers under the redwood trees to celebrate art and the beauty that surrounds us.
Strolling through Old Mill Park among old growth redwoods we see art forms and visions we have never seen before. Our eyes and ears open to new art and ideas at every turn of the Festival - from the story tellers and puppeteers, to the main stage acts, to face painting, to the fine arts and crafts themselves.
Although the art comes from near and far, the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival offers a warm, local, non-commercial experience and welcomes all ages and people.
We are now accepting Artist Applications for the 2020 Festival.
FREE admission for Students and Teachers with ID!
Ride your bike to the festival and get $5 off admission. Park in front of the Mill Valley Depot on Throckmorton and Marin County Bicycle Coalition will secure your bike and give you a token to get $5 off at the gate.
We have updated our brand with an artful new "MV" logo that we hope you agree captures the charm and spirit of our Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival. T-shirts available!
