Art and Craft Shows

Planning for the 2021 festival is underway. A detailed plan of how that will look will be released once the HOVF committee has set plans.  Our top priority is your safety! 


Fine Arts Show

Sponsored by the Town of Farmville

The Heart of Virginia Festival began in 1978 with the Art Show.  This juried show remains the centerpiece of the Heart of Virginia Festival, bringing artists from around the region to exhibit and sell high-quality art to the Central Virginia area. The Art Show is on High Street in front of Longwood University’s Rotunda.

Marketplace (Craft Show)

The Outdoor Marketplace features a wide variety of crafters with quality items from home decor, family fashion, garden accents, and more! All crafts are handmade and original ideas of the crafters themselves.
