6th Annual Paint the Port "Paint the Future Bright"

About this event

​Paint the Port is a family friendly event where our downtown streets are transformed into hundreds of 4×4 squares that serve as a canvas for people of all ages. Kids and adults are invited to get creative and paint the street using washable, tempera paints provided by the Freeport Art Museum. Together, we will create a colorful vibrant masterpiece.

Due to the construction on Chicago Ave we are moving locations this year. In 2022 we will be using portions of State, Stephenson, and Main Streets. Registration will be located at the new Freeport Art Museum building at the corner of State and Exchange.

​This year the money raised from our sales and sponsorships will support the completion of The Arts Plaza. The Arts Plaza contributes to the revitalization of our downtown, developing experiences that facilitate economic development, and encourage a greater sense of pride in our great city. This year we want to add seating near the splash pad with umbrellas for shade and bistro tables and chairs to other areas of the plaza.

In 2022 we are again excited to coordinate with Eats and Beats. This year Eats and Beats will take place at The Arts Plaza. This two-day event will bring several local food vendors and a variety of musical performances downtown.

Our theme for PTP 2022 is "Paint the Future Bright", which celebrates each person's role in creating Freeport's bright future.

The cost of registration is $15 , but the participant bag will NOT include a t-shirt. We will have a t-shirt available for purchase as an add -on to your square purchase.

DISCLAIMER: Locations are approximate(squares, sinks, paint refills, etc.). There may be some slight variance in the location in relationship to business on the map.

In the case of the event being rained out on Friday, the event will then be moved to Saturday, August 27th from 4-8pm

Your purchase is non-refundable.
