Creative Aging

Creative Aging Festival

ARTSFAIRFAX partners with the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services as well as other County agencies and community partners to organize the Creative Aging Festival each May in conjunction with Older Americans Month. The Creative Aging Festival stemmed from Fairfax County’s 50+ Community Action Plan’s Arts Initiative. The festival encourages older adult participation in the arts through a wide range of hands-on activities.

The 2018 Creative Aging Festival will feature more than 65 events, including visual, music, theatre, dance, literary, and culinary arts activities across Fairfax County.

For additional, helpful information, see the Creative Aging Resource Guide here.
