About the Festival

Celebrating it's 10th 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 festival is free to attend and enjoy.

Proceeds benefit the Luna Park Arts Foundation and support:

  • Grants to K-12 schools and youth programs who participate in the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival for their visual and performing arts programs
