Art in America   100,000 visitors will come to Florida to see street art
Back in 1995 Erin Allen and Maryanne Webber summoned a small group of Lake Worth people and they most probably have never dreamed of creting the most highly anticipated free cultural event in South Florida, the Street Painting Festival. What started as a small art festival for local people, now attracts 100,000 visitors each year.

The Street Painting Festival welcomes more than 600 artists of all ages to create their works with chalk on asphalt. Their drawing from Renaissance to postmodern and graffiti. Art in essence.

The idea of turning pavement into art can be traced back to the 16th century when Italian artists used their chalks to transform streets into galleries under open sky.

The Street Painting Festival is unique because its sponsors are not only businesses but families and individuals too. It covers more area than any other street painting festival.

But of course, this is not an open museum, The Street Painting Festival is a place where you can find plenty of delicious food and live music to entertain the visitors, art and sound in one place for everybody.

When: February 22 and 23, 2020, starts 10 A.M.

Where: Lake Worth, Florida. Just visit the downtown and you can't miss it.
