Art in the Burg

The Town of Middleburg regrets to inform the public that we have CANCELED Art in the Burg 2023, scheduled for Saturday, May 13th. The weather forecast indicates a 90% chance of rain for a significant portion of the day, to include up to a 50% chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. 

While we normally hold this event rain or shine, the likelihood of constant rain throughout the day has caused us to make this decision. We respect the need of artists to protect their artwork and crafts without risk of damage. Further, the weather outlook impacts attendance at outdoor events.

This year, the Town was not able to identify a rain date due to other events around the same weekend. In future years we will try to identify rain dates to accommodate these kinds of situations.

We encourage you to make plans for Oktoberfest 2023, which will include Artists’ Alley with many artists who had planned to exhibit at Art in the Burg.

The festival's People's Choice Award for Favorite Artwork remains open online so cast your vote at:

If you have questions or concerns, you can contact the Town Office during business hours at 540-687-5152.

The Middleburg Arts Council invites 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).  Applications will be accepted until April 1st; however, artists will be admitted on a rolling basis until all exhibit spaces are filled.  GET YOUR APPLICATION IN EARLY AS SPACE IS LIMITED.  

Successful applicants will be notified of their selection.  Once accepted, the non-refundable reservation fee ($50 which includes the temporary business license fee) must be paid within ten (10) days to reserve your slot.       

Art CAN Help! 

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.  Click here to register your team.
