I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival — ONLINE — May 23–25

The I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival will celebrate its 34th anniversary on May 23, 24, and 25, 2020, through an online festival experience! Previous festival artists will use chalk pastels to transform their pavement canvases into elaborate and vibrant compositions in their driveways. Join the fun and view the daily evolution of the street paintings on the festival website, Instagram, and Facebook. Follow the hashtags #imadonnari, #iMadOnline2020, #ChildrensCreativeProject, and #ChalkOn2020.

The new “Chalk for Kids” event invites children to create drawings on their driveways and share their colorful work on Instagram using #ChalkOn2020. Free chalk will be distributed on Saturday, May 23, between 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the drive-through parking lot at the corner of State and Micheltorena streets.

Thanks to the Children’s Creative Project for bringing this much-loved event to a community in need of the color and magic that the arts bring to our lives! More information about the festival and CCP can be found here.
