Support Us Today!
We need your help!The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the landscape of the performing arts: venues are closed due to health concerns, artists have halted their tours, dance companies have suspended performances and arts education programs are on hiatus as schools across the state are closed.
We are asking for your help. Your gift makes it possible for the Virginia Arts Festival to continue to operate, to re-schedule canceled performances, and to once again invite the world’s greatest performing artists to perform in your theaters and your concert halls, your schools, your churches and your community centers. When the restrictions are lifted, and we can all gather in safety once again, we will need the arts more than ever—as a source of joy, comfort, and renewed community. We will need to empower students who have lost weeks or months of education, who will need the hope and inspiration that performing artists bring to their classrooms, and the creative teaching tools we provide to their teachers.
Our need is immediate, and what we are able to accomplish now will have a profound effect on our ability to recover. We need to keep our lights on and our staff working to serve the community and the region as we have since 1997. On behalf of our Festival staff and Board of Directors, We wish you good health, and thank you for your continued support. With your help, our curtain will rise again.
