Whether you’re having trouble finding the right gift for someone on your holiday shopping list or you just want to be wowed, take a look at these holiday craft shows and light displays in Virginia.
Arts and craft shows give you an opportunity to support local artists and businesses. They often feature a variety of items to appreciate and purchase. A beautifully handmade work of art just might be the perfect gift for that special someone this season.
Alexandria is home to a couple of Holiday Markets in 2016. On John Carlyle Street from December 16th through 22nd, you’ll find a festival filled with beautiful arts and crafts, live entertainment, delicious food and drinks and children’s activities. You can also participate in the Holiday Sharing – Toy Drive program to brighten the spirits of families in need. Mt Vernon Avenue is where you’ll find the 21st annual Del Ray Artisans Fine Art & Fine Craft Holiday Market December 16th through 18th. Local artists will be selling pottery, photography, jewelry and other handcrafted works of art. A portion of all sales will benefit Del Ray Artisans’ mission to bring art to the community.
The Last Chance Holiday Bazaar takes place at the Lyon Village Community House in Arlington on December 17th. Hand-painted ornaments, handcrafted mirrors and other beautifully handmade items will be available.
The Richmond Art Museum presents Holiday Art Mart now through January 14th. This juried miniatures show features all original works no bigger than 5”x7” and also includes sculptures, jewelry and ceramics.
Virginia’s 100 Miles of Lights is a series of spectacular displays that spans seven cities–including Virginia’s oldest drive-through light show in Newport News Park: Celebration in Lights. With light displays that are updated every year, the state features a truly unique experience that is a delight for all ages. Here are just a few of the highlights.
The Winter Walk of Lights runs through January 8th at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens in Vienna. In their gift shop, you’ll find light-up wearables including jewelry, hats, wings and more. They also have light refreshments available.
Drive through a 2.5-mile light show at the Bull Run Festival of Lights Show in Centreville–also running through January 8th. The weekends tend to be the busiest, so if you want a less crowded trip, you may want to try Monday through Thursday at Bull Run Regional Park.
Celebration in Lights is another drive-through experience. More than 800,000 lights illuminate stationary and animated scenes including a penguin snowball fight, gingerbread people and more. With over 300 individual display pieces (70 of which are animated), it is truly a sight to behold–located in Newport News Park.
