Art on the Avenue, Del Ray’s annual arts festival, will return as an in-person event on Oct. 2, according to a news release.

The multicultural art festival will return to Del Ray’s Mount Vernon Avenue for its 26th year, after shifting to a virtual festival in 2020. Art on the Avenue is volunteer run, with support from local businesses, and works to reflect the different voices of the community through art, according to the release.

More than 300 local and regional artists will be featured at this year’s festival, as well as live music, international food, children’s activities and a pie baking contest that will benefit a local nonprofit.
