Art, crafts, family fun at the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival
Featuring over 100 jury-selected fine art and craft Exhibitors showing and selling their handcrafted works, the 39th annual Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival returns to Claudius Crozet Park for the 39th year Oct. 12-13.
This unique shopping experience offers visitors a chance to meet and make a personal connection with professional fine artists and artisans from our local area and further afield. Many are returning Exhibitors, but there are plenty of new faces as well – artists who are visiting this area for the first time, often on the recommendation of other Exhibitors who consistently report on the friendly, supportive crowds and good experience of taking part in the Crozet Festivals.
In addition to shopping, visitors will enjoy live music and entertainment all weekend, including sets from Susie and the Pistols, Zuzu’s Hot 5, the Western Albemarle High School Jazz Band, and more – all included free with festival admission! The Food Court will have a variety of delicious festival fare, Crozet Coffee will sell locally roasted hot and iced coffee, and Virginia wine and draft beer will be available by the glass.
Children are welcome at the Festival – besides the exposure to a variety of incredible fine art and craftwork, the Children’s Area will feature Kim and Jimbo Cary’s interactive musical performances (sponsored in part through the Virginia Commission for the Arts), facepainting and more.
Daily admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, and free for children 12 and under. Weekend tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for seniors. Tickets are available in advance at www.crozetfestival.com and area also for sale at the gate. Onsite parking is free. Details and directions are online at www.crozetfestival.com.
The Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival is held in benefit of Claudius Crozet Park, a 22 acre non-profit Park owned and operated by the community of Crozet and open to all.
