The Tradition of Street Painting
Traced back to 16th century Italy when itinerant artists would use their chalks to transform pavement into a makeshift canvas, street painting has retained its appeal through the centuries. As in ages past, crowds still gather to watch as fine works of art emerge. The “paintings” last only until the next rain, but the lively spirit and accessibility of the exhibition captivates new audiences each year and inspires lasting memories.
Note to Pet Owners: The Festival is not an appropriate venue to bring your canine friend or pet . The crowded and hot pavement and often scorching heat is an unsafe environment for them. Let’s work together to advocate for responsible pet ownership and safeguard our four legged friends. Thank you!
