Arts Alive! 2023 is the perfect way to experience our region’s talented arts organizations! Join us for an afternoon of diverse performances across four stages, and celebrate your local arts community on Sunday, September 10 from 12 to 5 p.m. This free, family-friendly festival takes place at the Hylton Center and features Prince William County Arts Council members and other community performers and fine artists. Enjoy hands-on activities and demonstrations for all ages; visual art on display; and creative writing and poetry workshops. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase.  

"Arts Alive! showcases the energy and variety of our regional arts community like no other event all year,” shares Rick Davis, dean and executive director of the Hylton Center. “Spending part of your day with Arts Alive! is guaranteed to leave you with a deeper appreciation for how much talent is right here and how accessible it all is.  And it's a chance to hang out at just about the most beautiful arts facility anywhere, if we do say so ourselves."
