For more than 50 years An Occasion For The Arts has brought fabulous art to historic downtown Williamsburg, VA on the 1st weekend of October. Last year 144 outstanding artists from 22 states and Isreal displayed and sold their art at the event. Williamsburg is the home of the College of William & Mary with an affluent alumni base residing in the area. It is a growing midsize community with a population of 158,254. It is also a top tourism and retirement destination for people from all over the world.

We are dedicated to maintaining high standards and work diligently to foster a positive environment for artists and patrons.
