The Bridge to Ridge Arts Festival

Participate in the arts as a part of the Martin Luther King Community Celebration, The Bridge to Ridge Arts Festival will celebrate the creativity and vibrancy of those living in Charlottesville.

You are invited to SEE, LISTEN, SPEAK, DRAW, CELEBRATE, SHARE, EXPLORE and PLAY with your Charlottesville neighbors.

A part of The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative and Piedmont Council for the Arts‘ Play the City project, this event will use our observation and creativity to acknowledge the past, live together in the present, and work as a community to define the future in the light of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s influence.

The event will culminate in the annual Mt. Zion Baptist Church Martin Luther King Celebration Service at 5pm and a 7pm post celebration party at the IX Art Park.
