Recurring Event Event Series: An Occasion for the Arts

An Occasion for the Arts

October 2, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


An Occasion for the Arts, now in its 54th year, is Williamsburg’s premier fine art and music festival. The event draws nearly 150 artisans from across 22 states to Williamsburg, Virginia to showcase their art. Make no mistake. This is not just an art show. It’s a festival, with live music on stage throughout the event, cultural performances happening throughout the festival streets (Duke of Gloucester Street and surrounding areas), and a Youth Art Exhibition. In 2022, An Occasion for the Arts will expand to become a three-day festival that also includes a Friday evening event, An Evening for the Arts.

It's time to cure that cabin fever and explore the splendors of Lehigh Valley. Restaurants open their patios for outdoor dining, miles of the region's trails thaw out for long bike rides, and seasonal blooms paint a picture perfect scene for heading out on a covered bridge tour.

At 148 acres of rolling hills and woodlands, Montgomery Hall Park is a great asset to Staunton. Once you’re on the looping miles of wooded hiking trails, you might actually forget that you’re within city limits. Hikers will often spot birds, squirrels, and deer. @Staunton
