This festival is the only street painting festival in Ventura County. Approximately fifty artists will be creating vibrant sidewalk art with chalk pastels. According to organizer Barbara Hinton, chalk art was added to the event in 2011. “We had fourteen artists that first year, which was fantastic considering I didn’t know a single street painter when I first had the idea.”
A limited number of chalk art squares are available for sponsorship by companies or individuals and will feature the sponsor’s name. Sponsorships can be purchased through Ventura County Art Events, which hosts the festival.
