What is An Occasion For The Arts?

—It’s Williamsburg’s Premier Art Show and Music Festival

Since 1968, An Occasion For The Arts has brought this major cultural event to the residents and visitors of the Historic Triangle. Held on the first weekend of October, this art show and music festival brightens the streets around Colonial Williamsburg with a two day celebration of the Fine Arts – a diverse collection of paintings, sculptures, fabrics, jewelry, and photographs combined with music and food.

This art show and music festival attracts local and out-of-town visitors each year bringing the work of talented fine artists, local youth artists, and lively performing artists together for an exciting day of youth and family activities.
