Art in the Burg

Third Saturday in May & September

Downtown Area

In light of the National Emergency and ongoing events surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Fall Art in the Burg has been postponed until the Spring.  We look forward to seeing everyone at that time!

2021 - Spring Art in the Burg returns to Celebrate the Arts! We plan to pack the town with art, music and children's activities from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m!  
For the first time, local artists will participate in Art CAN Help by creating sculptures from unopened cans of food.  Vote for your favorite sculpture by dropping a dollar in their can.  All proceeds from Art CAN Help will benefit the Seven Loaves Foodbank.

The Middleburg Arts Council will invite artists to take part in this town-wide event.  This is a juried event, and if selected, artists will need to bring their own 10'x10' tent (white top preferred - no tarps).  Artists will be assigned a location around the town on a first-come-first-serve basis based upon their preferred location.  Location information will be provided to the artists, along with your set-up time, prior to the event.  

Check here for future details on when applications must be submitted.  Successful applicants will be notified of their selection.  Non-refundable reservation fees (vary depending on location) and the temporary business license fee ($10) must be paid by the deadline to finalize the registration.                     

For the first time, Art in the Burg will offer a People's Choice Award.  Artists selected to participate in Art in the Burg may also submit one piece of art for the People's Choice Award.  A digital image will be requested upon the artist's selection.  Voting will take place on the Arts Council's Facebook page.  The winner's art will be displayed during Art in the Burg and they will receive $100 and a People's Choice Certificate.  

Art CAN Help! - POSTPONED to 2021 Art in the Burg 

Schools, businesses and individual teams are invited to create a unique can sculpture, using unopened cans of food, to be displayed during Art in the Burg.  Patrons will vote for their favorite sculpture by making a cash donation, with the sculpture receiving the highest dollar amount when tallied being the winner of the "CANS" Art Festival Award.
