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.
THE 2020 ACCEPTED ARTISTS ARE INVITED TO EXHIBIT IN 2021!
MVFAF COVID safety requirements are based on the State of California and Marin County’s COVID-19 safety mandates and recommendations currently in force. We reserve the right to change these requirements or cancel the festival at short notice, subject to local health conditions.
