An annual community art festival in Charlottesville, Virginia. 

September 23rd, 2017. 12-6pm


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. 

The festival is free and open to the public.

Donations and proceeds from the event support local charities and strengthen community businesses. This year's partner charity is International Neighbors




We're looking for 30 local artists to show their work at ARTCHO. Apply now!


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


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


We've partnered with International Neighbors, an organization helping refugees and immigrants in our community. 



ARTCHO will take place at a scenic overlook on Pantops Mountain. 

Free parking and restrooms will be available.
