This year things will be different!
Because of the health risks to our community and the world, the board of the Luna Park Arts Foundation has decided not to hold a live, in-person, chalk art festival.

This year all participation in the festival will be free and up to you!

Stay tuned and follow our social media to find out more about how you can help make this year the biggest ever (the internet never runs out of chalk spaces)!

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 13th 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.
