Please check this page for updates between now and the festival.
First and foremost, THANK YOU for participating in this year’s festival!
We are excited to welcome our returning artists and get to know our new participants.
The following is important information you will need for the festival. Please read carefully and do not hesitate to email us if you have questions.
ALL artists and vendors need to sign in at the registration booth, next to the stage prior to setting up or chalking. We sometimes have to re-arrange spaces so please do not start setting up or chalking before checking in.
Chalk Artists only: 10 am - 7pm
Arts & Crafts Vendors, Business/Sponsor/Nonprofit Booths: Check in and set up between 7am and 9am.
Artists: Check in by 10am… we reserve the right to give your spot away if you do not start by 12pm.
The Luna Park Chalk Art Festival is located at Backesto Park at the intersection of N. 13th and Empire St. in San José, CA
Parking is available on a first come, first serve basis around the perimeter of the park along Empire, Jackson and N 15th St. Parking is prohibited on the N. 13th St. side of the park. Unauthorized vehicles may be towed.
Each square will be provided a box of soft pastels and a sign stake to write your name on.
Schools will be provided with a couple boxes of soft pastels to share. We may provide limited additional supplies, but it’s best to bring your own.
All vendors making sales MUST provide their CA seller's permit or temporary permit number to the festival organizers. Please also bring a copy to have at your booth. You will be asked to provide your permit before we escort you to your booth space if you did not provide one at registration. Nonprofit, business and sponsor booths do not need a seller's permit, unless they are selling something.
If you do not have a valid permit, we will unhappily be unable to let you sell because the Board of Equalization does check on vendors at festivals such as ours.
If you have a booth and a chalk space, we have attempted to put your chalk space as close to your booth as possible.
Check your email for specific instructions.
