Arts Herndon came about as a merger of two arts organizations active in Herndon. These were the Council for the Arts of Herndon and the Herndon Foundation for the Cultural Arts. With many decades of combined experience supporting local arts, this new organization works on future plans for a larger center in the downtown area.
This art gallery venue stands within the Washington metropolitan area. The town of Herndon is an easy half-hour drive from Washington DC and a one-hour drive from Baltimore, Maryland. Visitors can enjoy the amenities of the cities with convenient access to rural areas.

The perfect backdrop for a Dulles Regional Chamber event
Arts Herndon was the perfect space for our Vision Board workshop. This is such a fun & creative place for any event. Jo and her staff arranged the room and even shared some of their art supplies with us. Our attendees loved seeing the exhibits and it was a great opportunity to showcase this little gem in the heart of Herndon. Thank you, we had a blast!Sent on 04/16/2020

Delightful celebration, beautiful venue!
I had a milestone birthday celebration at this facility, and it was terrific! The staff were pleasant and flexible to deal with, the gallery setting was lovely and we could personalize the decor to our taste, and the space is warm and inviting. Although I'm sure it would easily work for anything from 15 to 100 guests, we were quite comfortable with about 40. Bring in personal decor, your own caterer, and your event planner if you're using one.Sent on 04/13/2020

Holiday Homes Tour Reception Smash
The Holiday Homes Tour of Herndon is an annual attraction drawing approximately 600 people during the 6 hours of operation during the December holiday season. We’ve worked with Arts Herndon to be a rest stop and online ticket location for our guests for at least ten years. Arts Herndon provides a space with An Art gallery, a room to setup and manage refreshments and even a desk to greet and handle ticket operations with guests. In recent years, they’ve worked with us on ways to enhance the visitor experience, bringing in local artisans to display and sell crafts for the holidays, allowing our partner civic organizations to setup booths for communication about their missions, dressing the venue festively and engaging a choir for holiday music, and setting up a reception desk. The team is friendly, professional and supportive, and provide great suggestions on how to engage making the most appropriate use of their space while creating a memorable guest experience.Sent on 04/19/2020
