The Superior Arts Festival arrives at Ix Art Park

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) – The High Arts Festival at Ix Art Park, both famous and educated about the beneficial uses of cannabis and CBD.

“We have 40 vendors selling various things from jewelry to art to CBD products. We have music all day and then we have talks, like DIY talks, workshops and things that happen throughout,” said Alex Bryant, Executive Director of Ix Art Park.

Last year, Virginia changed cannabis laws so people could grow it at home.

“Each household can grow four plants and you can share those plants with your friends, and it’s all perfectly legal and you can consume in private,” Bryant said.

Bryant says it’s important to know what you’re putting into your body.

“There is no drinking today, the art park is a public park, but everyone here is encouraged. There are lots of seed giveaways and the like, go home, try their luck and just share the culture,” Bryant said.

Sellers share tips on how to care for plants and the possible benefits.

“This is really a community effort to show support and help normalize and educate the general public about cannabis and marijuana, THC and CBD and all those fun acronyms,” Bryant said.

Ix Art Park says it plans to hold similar events in the future.
