La Strada dei Pastelli Chalk Art Festival returns to Main Street Hillsboro. This event combines community engagement and art appreciation into one FREE fun-filled weekend. This summer festival features a window into the creative process where festival goers can engage with nationally-recognized and emerging visual artists as they carefully create colorful chalk art drawings down the center of the street.
In addition to the visual arts exhibitions, local performing artists fill the air with rhythm and sound from the festival’s main stage. Local art vendors will also have booths, each selling unique items. Children of all ages are encouraged to participate in hands-on activities, which local nonprofit organizations will provide.
This year’s theme is “Creative Critters,” and is free to attend.
