The Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival began as The Arts Festival in 1957 with a group of artists exhibiting their works in downtown store windows. As participation increased, the fledgling festival was held in Lytton Square. In 1962, the festival was incorporated, became an independent nonprofit organization and officially changed its name to The Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival and moved to its present site at historic Old Mill Park.

The juried works include prints, jewelry, paintings, woodwork, photography. Wearable art and sculpture.  Many artists are fortunate to return every year and there are plenty of new artists who get juried in keeping the festival a popular mixture of tradition and novelty.  The festival, held in the majestic Redwood grove of Old Mill Park in down town Mill Valley, is rated one of the top 10 fine arts and crafts shows in the Northwest and a beloved Mill Valley tradition.
