Festival of the Arts in downtown Luray
The most exciting happening in downtown Luray this coming weekend is the Festival of Arts on March 23-25, organized by the Page Valley Arts Council.
This festival is not your average art show or craft fair. What makes it stand apart is that YOU can watch 35 local painters, ceramic artists, fiber artists, b
asket and stained glass makers, and other artisans as they work or perform at four venues from 10am-5pm on Saturday and 11am-4pm on Sunday.
Scheduled events include music samplers on Friday and Saturday evenings, plus eight authors reading their short stories and three performing groups on stage throughout the weekend.
For a detailed schedule, go to pagevalleyartscouncil.
