Celebrating its 12th Anniversary, the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival 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 over 250 pieces of diverse art throughout the park’s pathways, including original works, classical re­creations, traditional Italian madonarri street painting, 3D realistic works, cartoons, modern abstractions, and more. In addition to the artwork, the festival features a main stage of local musicians, dancers and performers, as well as local food trucks and vendor booths.

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