Organizers of the 63rd Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival are laying the groundwork for the next edition of the landmark local arts event, set for Sept. 14-15 in Old Mill Park, and are on the hunt for new members of its Festival Committee, which is responsible for organizing the event, which regularly draws thousands of art lovers to ​Mill Valley’s Old Mill Park for an artistic weekend like no other, providing the opportunity to check out world class art across an array of mediums. 

The Festival Committee is responsible for the design and hands on development off the Festival itself. “This is a roll up your shirt sleeves and dig in kind of a position,” says Steve Bajor, MVFAF’s executive director.

The 63rd edition of MVFAF comes on the heels it garnering the Vera Schultz Award, which honors achievements of organizations that have made lasting contributions to the cultural life of Mill Valley, at the Milley Awards in 2018. MVFAF began as the Harvest Moon Festival in 1957 with a group of artists exhibiting their works in downtown store windows. In 1962, the festival was incorporated, became an independent nonprofit organization, officially changed its name to the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival and moved to its present site at historic Old Mill Park. 

The Festival Committee works diligently to continue our tradition of:

  • Encouraging and fostering public education in the awareness and appreciation of fine arts and crafts.
  • Providing an open and continuing dialogue between the established artist and the public.
  • Creating a foundation upon which local service organizations are able to raise a large portion of their operating budgets.
  • Providing an important showcase for new and emerging artists.
  • Presenting a high quality family friendly event.
