The 3rd Annual Alley Art Festival will be presented by the Vista Art Foundation (VAF) on Sept. 3. Participants will take over the alleys of downtown Vista for a day of music, film, poetry, fashion, art, and more. The festival is a celebration of unique art and a platform for artists – including poets, designers, performers, and painters – to interact and share their passion for their craft.

The VAF is a nonprofit organization of artists committed to supporting and promoting the education and cultural appreciation of fine art and creative expression in the community. The foundation works to accomplish this goal by hosting public membership meetings, demonstrations, outdoor displays, exhibitions, commercial displays, and providing student scholarships. The foundation has hung art in the Vista Library, Vista Chamber of Commerce, City of Vista Civic Gallery, as well as other business locations in Vista. For more information visit
