Welcome to Canada’s largest street painting festival! Our family friendly, free-to-attend arts celebration presents some of the world’s top street painters (including 3D chalk art) as well as those from across British Columbia and our local region at Ship Point in the Inner Harbour & The Bay Centre.
Our festival’s First Nation’s theme for 2016 is “Adventure in the Forest World; a Celebration of Nature’s Spirits”. We present a number of First Nation’s singers, dancers and drummers on our outdoor performance stage on the Victoria waterfront which is also home to our kid’s chalk zone – free chalk provided!
