Virginia Arts Festival Postpones All Events Through June 14

Victoria Wasylak • News • April 3, 2020

The Virginia Arts Festival’s top priority continues to be the health and safety of all patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff. In conformance with Governor Ralph Northam’s statewide ban on events over 10 people, and due to the increasing threat of COVID-19, Virginia Arts Festival events through June 14 will be rescheduled, postponed, or canceled effective Friday, April 3, 2020.

“Thank you for your patience and your continued patronage as we work through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The restrictions on travel have impacted our ability to bring world-class artists to our stages, and safety measures such as closing facilities and limiting public gatherings have forced us to reschedule, postpone, or cancel many upcoming performances,” said Robert W. Cross, Perry artistic director. “We are working hard to reschedule as many events as we can. Until we can safely gather again, I wish you good health, and I look forward to seeing you at a Virginia Arts Festival performance once the crisis has ended.”

To stay up to date on rescheduled performances, please visit vafest.org/message and follow the Virginia Arts Festival on social media @VaArtsFest.

The Robin Hixon Theater, Clay and Jay Barr Education Center and VAF offices will stay closed to visitors, however, administrative staff will be on hand to continue basic business operations. To stay informed on COVID-19, visit cdc.gov for the latest updates.
