La Strada dei Pastelli Weekend:

Time: July 16th, 2022 - July 17th, 2022  from 10:00am - 6:00pm

Location: Downtown Hillsboro inside the Cultural Arts District 

(along E. Main Street flanking 1st Ave to 4th Ave)

La Strada dei Pastelli is an open-air,  two-day, summer chalk art festival where community engagement and art appreciation combine into one FREE fun-filled weekend.

The festival is supported in part by the City of Hillsboro and Patricia Reser.

This Oregon classic provides a window into the creative process of nationally-recognized and emerging professional chalk artists as they carefully manipulate bold, colorful pigments to produce huge, temporary drawings down the center of the streets. "Professional chalk artists utilize the saturated hues to fully render images ranging from flamenco dancers, family portraits, goofy dogs, and iconic cartoon characters," says a press release from the Tualatin Valley Creates art nonprofit. "The range is limitless and is a staple for large-scale chalk artists around the world.” 

Most of the art premiered here will average ten feet wide by ten feet tall!

Simultaneous with the visual arts exhibitions, local live performing artists such as dance groups and musicians will fill the air with rhythm and sound from the festival’s main stage while local art vendors line the streets, offering unique items and inspirations to all the attendees. Additionally, there will be a wide variety of food and beverage options (including beer and wine), multiple family-friendly games, interactive demonstrations, kid’s activities, and visitors can even make their own small-scale chalk art!
