Chalk Festival Fast Approching – June 16

The annual Pasadena Chalk Festival, recipient of the 2010 Guinness World Record as the largest public art event of its kind, celebrates its 20th Anniversary on Father’s Day Weekend June 16 and 17, 2012 at Paseo Colorado. Each year tens of thousands of spectators enjoy the annual festival free of charge. This year’s event will also expand at the Convention Center, celebrate long-time veteran artists and include a special Friday evening concert launch.

Hundreds of artists come from all across Southern California and beyond to create spectacular chalk murals on concrete surfaces in every style imaginable. In addition to the unique opportunity to watch artists at work, guests will be treated to live music and entertainment throughout the weekend. The art of street painting is centuries old. In fact, it goes back to the 16th century and provided a living for many itinerant artists after World War Two. The Pasadena Chalk Festival benefits the community arts programs of the Light Bringer Project, and supports several innovative arts and learning programs in our public schools.
