ChiVAA, the Chico Visual Arts Alliance is excited to announce the return of our annual Mothers’ Day Weekend Art Extravaganza on May 6 & 7. This event, formerly Art at the Matador, has been renamed Chico ART Festival. This year we will hold our gala at the beautiful St. John’s Episcopal Church at 2341 Floral Avenue in Chico. Our two-day, one-stop Art Expo has four goals: 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.

ChiVAA will continue to garner support from Chico businesses to offset expenses and will promote our artists in print, on the air, and through social media. Participating artists will have the opportunity to transform their assigned spaces into living galleries where they can meet the public, market their wares, and be inspired by each other. In addition, participating artists will automatically become ChiVAA members for a year.

This year’s event will be outdoor only due to continuing concerns over Covid transmissions. In addition we will follow pandemic safety guidelines recommended for Butte County and the State of California for events such as the Chico ART Festival.
