Art is in the air! Spend a day of art and fun during the 9th Annual Luna Park Chalk Art Festival happening on September 17 from 10am-5pm at Backesto Park. This free event will have over 150 pieces of chalk art for you to admire throughout the park, various arts and crafts vendors, food trucks and live music. Proceeds of this colorful event will benefit K-12 art programs in local schools.
Attracting over 3,000 artists, students, and chalk enthusiasts, the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival showcases the work of various participants that include original works, classical recreations, traditional Italian madonarri street painting, 3D realistic works, cartoons, modern abstractions, and so much more. In addition to the chalk art that will be displayed throughout the pathways of the park, the festival has a stage for live music, dancers and performers, as well as local food trucks and vendor booths. This event is completely run by volunteers from the Luna Park Arts Foundation who aim to bring free and low cost opportunities for the community to come together to participate in creative projects and to raise money to provide grants to K-12 visual and performing arts programs.
