May 26-29
Santa Barbara I Madonnari Chalk Festival


Come watch me chalk a 12'x12' masterpiece for The Blue Walk in beautiful Santa Barbara, California at the Mission.

Madonnari, or street painters, transform the Mission plaza using pastels on pavement to create 150 vibrant and colorful, large scale images. The festival benefits the Children's Creative Project, a nonprofit arts education program of the Santa Barbara County Education Office. The Project serves 50,000 children in more than 100 schools with visual and performing arts workshops and performances throughout Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. 

Festival hours are 10-6 daily. Admission is free.
