Our Walk for Autism & Family Festival is more than just a Walk - it's a fun time for the entire family! Join other families for the resource fair, music, moon bounce, sensory-friendly carnival and so much more!
Since the Walk for Autism-Virginia began, we have raised over half a million dollars that has been returned to the community in the form of education, advocacy and support for local families. Hundreds of families throughout Northern Virginia have benefited from the generosity of our many donors and supporters. We celebrate them as we look forward to taking our event to even greater heights!
Help us raise awareness and acceptance for those on the autism spectrum!

The Walk is about one-mile long will start at approximately 10:45am following opening remarks. The Walk route will loop around the fairgrounds complex and be clearly marked. The path consists of paved and hard-packed trail sections, friendly for strollers and wagons. You will enjoy the company of hundreds of other walkers, the changing leaves on the trees and signs of encouragement posted along the route. If you feel compelled to bring your 4-legged family members, please be sure they are comfortable around large crowds (including being petted by strangers) and that they are leashed the entire time.
Please consider forming a Walk Team to extend the reach of our efforts! Forming a team of family, friends, and co-workers is a great way to honor someone you know with autism. Proceeds benefit the Autism Society of Northern Virginia to support individuals and families affected by autism.
