Arts in the Parks is a FREE family fun alternative to Wednesday and Saturday morning cartoons and video games. It entertains children; teaches them the importance of protecting our natural resources; introduces them to live entertainment in an informal, kid friendly atmosphere; and forges a connection between kids and parks.

For most children, Arts in the Parks is their first exposure to live entertainment. Many of the young audience members get their first chance to join professionals on stage, so they remember and forever associate the delightful experiences with parks. For Fairfax County's younger set, ARTS IN THE PARKS has become THE THING TO DO!

Arts in the Parks is held at Burke Lake Park, Mason District Park, E.C. Lawrence Park and Wakefield Park on Saturday mornings at 10 a.m.; at Frying Pan Park on Wednesday mornings at 10 a.m.; Mosaic Live! at Mosaic Center on Saturday evenings at 6 p.m. and at Sully Historic Site on Saturday evenings at 7 p.m.
