The Crozet Arts & Crafts Festival is a tradition for many artists, patrons, volunteers and entertainers alike. It has a strong reputation locally and the demographics of the area provide support year after year. Due to its central location in the Commonwealth and its convenient access to many major roadways, including I-81 and I-64, the Charlottesville area makes a great show stop between major cities. Any time of year is a good time of year to do business here, but many visitors choose to visit this historic area in the exquisite Spring and Fall.
Crozet Arts & Crafts Festivals are held at and benefit Claudius Crozet Park. The Park is a community owned and operated non-profit recreational facility open to all. Locals support the art festival for this reason. Out of towners and travelers from other regions attend due to the stellar reputation of the quality of work for sale and in support of Artists and Handcrafters. The Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival is run by one year-round Festival Director, supported by the Park Board. The Festivals operate with the aid of amazing Crozet and Albemarle County area volunteers who give their time in a variety of capacities during each Festival weekend. Fine Art and Craftwork are the heart of the Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival and we are honored to host incredible groups of Artists and Artisans over the past 37 years. Together, we continue to improve the entire experience each year and in 2017 we were pleased to have our Spring Festival included on Sunshine Artists Top 200 List.
