2018 Creative Aging Festival

Fairfax County Creative Aging Festival

Residents across Fairfax County are joining in a month-long celebration of the visual, literary and performing arts and the profound impact they have on older adults.

"Whether it's through dancing and music, painting, sculpting, crocheting, writing, or drawing, the arts provide vitality and energy in the lives of older adults," said Evan Braff, Regional Manager, Fairfax County Neighborhood and Community Services. "Pursuing the arts in all of their forms provides so much in the way of socialization, personal enjoyment, lifelong learning opportunities and community involvement - and that's why Senior Centers in Fairfax County and the City of Fairfax have focused on including the arts in the programming options we offer at our locations."

During the 2018 Creative Aging Festival senior centers throughout the county will be hosting demonstrations, performances and interactive classes involving writing, drawing, painting, crafting, music and dance. A complete schedule of activities is listed below. Please be sure to contact the host location for additional details and information about specific activities.

Come and discover how the arts can fill your golden years with meaning, purpose and grace!
