I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival | Santa Barbara

I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival

What's happening?

Madonnari, or street painters, transform the Mission plaza using pastels on pavement to create 150 vibrant and colorful, large scale images each Memorial Day weekend. We are proud to be the first to bring this romantic festival to the western hemisphere from our sister festival in Grazie di Curtatone, Italy. The festival benefits the Children's Creative Project, a nonprofit arts education program of the Santa Barbara County Education Office.
