It’s Open Studio – Botetourt’s 10th Anniversary!

Hard to believe but 2020 is already the 10th Anniversary of Open Studios-Botetourt. We have months of planning ahead of us to make this, for our fans, the best tour event yet.

First though, we needed to pick a weekend. And the last full weekend in October is it – October 24th and October 25th, 2020.
