The 66th edition of the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival, one of the oldest art festivals in California, sought to infuse the landmark event with an infusion of excitement via the next generation, showing the evolution and the next generation that young artists and art lovers are bringing to this historic event.

On September 23 and 24th 135, artists from around the Bay Area and a record number of festival attendees gathered under the redwoods to celebrate the 66th year of the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival.

Artist booths lined the path of Old Mill Park featuring curated handmade paintings, sculptures, ceramics, jewelry, textiles and more.

The Festival had a lively atmosphere where new friends and old enjoyed live entertainment and local food and beverage. Bands like Jinx Jones and Dirty Cello got festival goers out of their seats and on the dance floor while the kiddos were delighted with puppet shows, stories, magic and more.

The Festival also featured the work of Emerging youth artists as well as neurodivergent artists from Marin. Daniel Oliver, Amy Faust, Cynthia Minoli, and Hilary Williams received Special Recognition awards for their outstanding work at the artist reception Saturday night.

Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival invites their community to provide their continued support by making a donation this long standing cherished event will return in 2024 and for years to come! Visit for more information.
