An annual community art festival in Charlottesville, Virginia. 
November 3rd, 2018, 10am-6pm at Ix Art Park.


What is artcho?

ARTCHO is an annual festival bringing the people of Charlottesville together to enjoy art, music, and food in a relaxed, family-friendly environment. (Don't worry — there will be craft beer!)

Our goal is to exhibit high quality artwork at prices that regular folks can afford. Local restaurants and talented musicians will keep you well-fed and entertained while you browse a broad selection of original art by Virginia’s best creatives.

This year we have 44 artists and 4 bands—a day full of music and art!

All art will be for sale. Additionally, each artist donates a work of their choice for our silent auction to support a partner charity, which is held throughout the day. You do not have to be present to win.

The festival is free and open to the public.

Donations and proceeds from the event go to a local non-profit to assist in strengthening the community.  This year we are proud to be raising money and awareness for Common Ground Healing Arts.

If you would like to support ARTCHO please make a donation below or visit our shop for t-shirts!

A huge THANK YOU to our sponsors and partners who are helping us to make this happen. If you would like to help with a contribution, please visit the sponsorship page to see how to give.

This year we are hosting five different workshops between 10 am and 5:30 pm. Watch this space or subscribe for our newsletter to learn more.



Forty-four of central Virginia's most creative artists will be showing their work at ARTCHO. Meet the artists.


Four local bands playing a wide variety of music will be performing throughout the afternoon.


Four of Charlottesville's best local restaurants and food trucks - all in one place. And yes, there will be beer too!



For ARTCHO’s second edition, we’re partnering with Common Ground Healing Arts, Charlottesville’s non-profit community wellness center.




ARTCHO will take place at Ix Art Park in downtown Charlottesville.
Free parking and restrooms will be available. Rain or shine.
