The Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival is unique in that it is by a volunteer committee of local artists! These committed volunteers have given the Bay Area community a spectacular festival to enjoy for 55 years. Any surplus funds from this non-profit Festival go right back to the community. The committee is very excited to fund the Emerging Artist Award granted to two High School art students per year.
