An annual community art festival in Charlottesville, Virginia. 
November 2nd, 2019, 10:30am-5:30pm 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.

The festival is free and open to the public.

This year we are proud to be raising money and awareness for Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville.

Each artist donates a work of their choice for our silent auction to support our partner non-profit, and several artists will be hosting workshops throughout the event.

Last year we had 44 artists, 5 bands, 4 art workshops, and a day full of music and art!

If you would like to support ARTCHO please make a donation below or visit our shop for totes and 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.
