Year after year, the McLean Project for the Arts artfest has been getting bigger and better.
This year, the event - planned for Sunday at McLean Central Park - will include one more fun, new addition - wine!
The McLean Project for the Arts will be selling vino at the "Beret Cafe" for the first time this year. Several food vendors will also be offering lunch and little nibbles, including Greenberry’s, J. Gilberts, Lebanese Taverna, Lost Dog Cafe, Mama's Doughnut Bites and Nourish Market.
Let's not forget about the main attraction - the art! Fifty juried artists from around the Mid-Atlantic region (including some from the McLean and Great Falls area) will be showing their work. All of it is for sale. Dabney Cortina, a spokeswoman for McLean Project for the Arts, said artists intentionally show works in a variety of price points.
The artfest is free to attend, but the McLean Project for the Arts gratefully accepts a $5 donation per visitor, Cortina said. The proceeds of the festival are put towards next year's festival, exhibits at McLean Project for the Arts and arts education in McLean.
The festival will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday. For more infomation about musicians who will be performing, artists who will be showing their work and food vendors, visit the MPA website.
