22nd Annual Lake Worth Street Painting Festival in Downtown Lake Worth
      More than 600 artists will use the asphalt as their canvas to transform the streets of downtown Lake Worth into a temporary outdoor gallery of art February 20–21 during the 22nd Annual Street Painting Festival. The paintings—made only of chalk—remain only until traffic returns to the streets and the tires act as giant erasers and the next rain washes them away.
     The Lake Worth Street Painting Festival claims bragging rights as the world’s largest, covering more area than any other festival of its kind, and is the proud recipient of the 2014 Council's Choice, Muse Award for Cultural Excellence.
      This “outdoor gallery” is located on Lake and Lucerne Avenues, spanning between Dixie and Federal Highways. It all starts at 10:00 AM each day and ADMISSION IS FREE.
  • Parking is available throughout the downtown area, and Valet Service will also be available.
  • Take Tri-Rail to the Festival or Park & Ride: A Free festival shuttle makes timely loops from the Lake Worth Tri-Rail station and Palm Beach State College, Lake Worth Campus to Lake Worth City Hall in downtown from 10 AM to 6 PM both days.
     Kick back and enjoy continuous live music on the Festival's Main stage, located at the Cultural Plaza at Lake Avenue and M Street and don't miss the Festival Food Courts and downtown restaurants, accommodating culinary tastes and thirsts as diverse as the artwork.
     The Street Painting Festival is produced by Street Painting Festival Inc., a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization in cooperation with the City of Lake Worth. Proceeds support the Street Painting Festival event and benefit scholarships offered to graduating high school students, as well as community projects associated with the arts.
