Scenes from the 2021 Mill Valley Fall Arts Fest.

The Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival, with more than 130 highly competitive fine artists from around the country representing 15 media categories including sculpture, painting, ceramics, photography, textiles, woodwork and jewelry, returns to the always-stunning redwood grove in Old Mill Park on Sept. 17-18.

Organizers are coming off a 2021 event for which turnout was excellent, despite a consistent drizzle, a clear indication that one of Mill Valley’s landmarks remains as popular and well-regarded as ever. The event offers FREE Student and Teacher Admission, $10 pre-sale for senior and a discount for bicyclists.

As always, MVAF features crowd-drawing musical and children’s entertainment, a Saturday evening wine and cheese award ceremony for the artists, complimentary coffee and snacks for artists each morning, free parking for artists and a free shuttle bus service for attendees, a bountiful group of volunteers to assist artists, a beautiful outdoor redwood grove setting and a special Presentation Grove and Emerging Artist Grove as well as $500 Awards of Excellence to four artists who are invited back the next year.
