Danville residents are proud of their rich cultural history, and it's celebrated each year at the Fall Arts and Crafts Festival. This year the event takes place Sept. 9, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in downtown Danville. Held on the first Saturday after Labor Day, the Danville Arts and Crafts Festival brings together thousands of visitors with more than 125 crafters and artisans from throughout the region. Food and entertainment galore! Mill Street, the main street that runs through Danville, transforms into an art gallery for this family-friendly, outdoor festival, held rain or shine.
