This year's Lucky 13th Annual Luna Park Chalk Art Festival is brought to you by


We are especially 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 14th 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. This year attendance and participation are unlimited as we go virtual in order to keep everyone safe.  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. This year's live entertainment and food offerings are up to you.  Sing, dance, cook, chalk and make art for our local community and the whole world.

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