Arts Herndon – The Fall is the perfect time to celebrate children’s literacy with a Children’s Literary Festival.  The Arts Herndon Children’s Literary Festival will take place during our Arts Week here in the Town of Herndon.  The Festival will take place on Sunday, October 7, 2018, 11:00am – 4:00pm and is sponsored in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.

We anticipate record crowds as the Arts Herndon Children’s Literary Festival features guest authors, illustrators and publishers as well as food trucks from the DMV, live entertainment, art projects and Artisans. Here you can buy all kinds of books and specialty artwork for young readers and the first 300 kids get a free book from renowned author Kwame Alexander.

Celebrating literature and promoting literacy in our community is our goal.

In collaboration with local author, Kwame Alexander, Arts Herndon presents the first Herndon Children’s Literary Festival.
