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. All art will be for sale. Additionally, each artist donates a work of their choice for our silent auction which is held throughout the day. You do not have to be present to win.
The festival is free and open to the public.
All donations and proceeds from the event go 100% to the local non-profit and strengthen community businesses. This year's partner charity is International Neighbors.
