Hello Art Patrons, Enthusiasts, and Fellow Artists,
Save the dates!
ChiVAA, the Chico Visual Arts Alliance, is already planning our 2024 Chico ART Festival. Formerly Art at the Matador, it will be held on Mother’s Day Weekend, Friday and Saturday, May 10th and 11th, 2024 outdoors on the beautiful grounds of St John’s Episcopal Church on Floral Avenue in Chico. This will be our 11th annual art festival.
Last year’s the Chico ART Festival got rare reviews by attendees and participating artists alike. In 2022, our event 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 coming 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 ? Save the dates and see you Friday and Saturday, May 10-11, 2024!
Interested in exhibiting with us? The exhibition prospectus will be available mid-January 2024. Applications will be accepted starting February 1st.
ChiVAA is expanding opportunities for you as a working artist to build your arts business and to improve the cultural and economic well being of our community.
We’re revving up some familiar ChiVAA projects. And, we’re dedicating the organization to delivering new opportunities for artists to flourish in our area.
