Pasadena Chalk Festival – Father’s Day Weekend

Join Us Saturday and Sunday 

June 15th and 16th from 10am-7pm



Yes, it’s Father’s Day Weekend at Paseo Colorado and see more than 500 artists from all over southern California create 200 murals in pastel chalk, using the pavement as their canvas. 

Murals range in subject matter from the classical to whimsical, including renditions of masterpieces, abstract, portraiture, movie images, 3D effects, animation, et al! An Art Gallery & Silent Auction showcasing 200 original paintings created by the chalk artists makes great affordable art, with all proceeds benefitting the arts and learning programs of Light Bringer Project.

Young children can enjoy making art and having their face painted in Kid’s Chalkland. And you can enjoy Classic Cars showcased along Green Street on Father’s Day Sunday. Have tacos and a chilled drink in the El Cholo Cantina providing al fresco seating, with a portion of proceeds benefitting Light Bringer Project. Paseo Colorado offers a great selection of restaurants, cafes, unique retail shops, the ArcLight Movie Theater, and more!!

Where: Paseo Colorado, 280 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91101. Murals also extend across Green Street onto the Convention Center concourse.

Cost: FREE! Bring the Family
