The McLean Community Center (MCC) is pleased to present its 39th annual holiday crafts show in person the first weekend of December. As patrons have come to expect, the McLean Holiday Art & Crafts Festival will feature a wide variety of high-quality handmade items just in time for the holidays.

Show hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 3; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 4; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 5. Admission is $5 and free for children ages 12 or younger. The admission price is good for all three days of the show. MCC is located at 1234 Ingleside Avenue.

MCC Special Events Manager Catherine Nesbitt is excited to be able to bring the show back. “This is a fun and festive community event that is sure to inspire holiday cheer! Esteemed jurors have carefully selected artists who have created extraordinary and affordable treasures. Come support your community and shop locally,” she said. Proceeds from the show benefit the Northern Virginia Handcrafters Guild, a 501(c)3 that offers scholarships and supports the arts.
