Chico ART Festival - May 12 & 13, 2023

Hello Art Patrons, Enthusiasts, and Fellow Artists,

ChiVAA is proud to announce that our bigger and better Chico ART Festival, formerly Art at the Matador, will be held this year on Mother’s Day Weekend, Friday and Saturday, May 12th and 13th, 2023 on the beautiful grounds of St John’s Episcopal Church on Floral Avenue in Chico. This is the 10th annual art festival organized by ChiVAA, the Chico Visual Arts Alliance.

Last year’s Chico ART Festival was the Chico News and Review Best of Chico 2022 Editors’ Pick as the “Best Revival of a Community Event”. CN&R went on to say “The return of this beloved event is one of the highlights of 2022.” This year, we plan to meet and exceed expectations. 

This two-day, one stop ART festival has four aims: to showcase our local artists, to promote Chico as an arts destination center, to educate the public about the variety and value of art in our community, and to throw a really great Chico-style party.

Interested in attending the Chico ART Festival ? See you Friday and Saturday, May 12-13, 2023!
