About Crozet Arts and Crafts Festival
We started small 36 years ago and gradually grew with the community. Today’s award winning festivals center around the Juried Art Show along with entertainment for the whole family. Great food and some of the best local wines are becoming a larger attraction each year. Entertainment is diverse and reflects the melting pot of tastes found in Central Virgina. From Southern Gospel to Cello and Flute duets to rock and roll… The raucous and the refined all appear on our stage. The twice yearly festivals serve to fund the growth and upkeep of our very own park.
Since 1958, the twenty-two acre Claudius Crozet Park has been a center piece for the Crozet community. Claudius Crozet Park has beautiful views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is a recreational facility open to all. We pride ourselves in providing a beautiful setting for families to gather for various activities and sporting events. Our facilities include a one acre lake, the largest outdoor community pool in the area- (now featuring year round swimming), our new partners: the YMCA, soccer, baseball and T-ball fields, youth tennis courts, a large picnic pavilion, and two playgrounds. Trail building around and connected to the park is taking place through The Crozet Trails Crew- which will link our park to many areas around town.
Holding true to a sustainable growth plan, what was once a sleepy little railroad town with a history of fruit growing and packing- we have grown into a village of semi-rural dwellers. We are a combination of historic and working farms coexisting with modern day home developments. What started out as an Indian trail – Three Notch’d Road, has evolved into a contemporary culinary, artisan and local food trail featuring great artists and blossoming wine and craft beer venues- all set within a picturesque mountain valley. We are a dedicated growth area set on retaining its country charm and values of the arts above all.
