We are grateful this year for their continued support!

Although our normal income streams will be small this year, we still hope to bring educational opportunities to kids through our festival and our arts education grant program.

Celebrating its 15th Anniversary, the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival usually attracts over 3,000 artists, students, vendors, and community members for a colorful day in San José’s Backesto Park. Artists, students and chalk enthusiasts create pieces of diverse art wherever they are in the world, including original works, classical re­creations, traditional Italian madonarri street painting, 3D realistic works, cartoons, modern abstractions, and more.

The Luna Park Chalk Art Festival and Luna Park Arts Foundation are 100% volunteer run.
