Palo Alto Festival of the Arts


The thirty eighth annual Palo Alto Festival of the Arts is back! Recognized as one of the top outdoor fine arts festivals in the Bay Area, Palo Alto Festival of the Arts brings live entertainment to the stage and to the street. Stroll through the festival and browse amongst  the three hundred arts and crafts booths lined down University Avenue. A high percentage of the artists and crafters only showcase their work on the West Coast with a few number of shows, attracting many Bay Area residents to make sure they don’t miss their chance to check them out. One of the main hits of the festival, the Italian Street painting Expo, is back and offering sixty chalk artists creating large works of art all weekend long. 

Kids will be just as entertained with the free Kids’ Art Studio where professional art instructors will guide children in art activities. 

WHEN: August 24-25, 10AM-6PM

WHERE: University Ave. Palo Alto
