Elmira Downtown Development is proud to announce that preparations have begun for the annual Elmira Street Painting Festival! In 2016, more than 50 artists captivated the four-thousand visitors to the two-day festival. As this signature downtown Elmira event continues to grow, we are excited to announce some new and expanded initiatives for 2017:
Chalk It Up for our Youth : Taking place in four different locations around Elmira throughout June, this “outdoor classroom” will teach 60 local students (grades 3 -12) the art of street painting while they explore and develop their own artistic abilities.
Artists and Crafts: Many arts vendors will display their wares.
Multiple Live Music & Dance Acts throughout festival on both Water Street’s Main Stage and Wisner Park’s more intimate Park Stage.
The continued success of the Elmira Street Painting Festival is thanks to the support of our many volunteers and sponsors, without whom the event would simply not be possible. As we begin our preparations for next year festival, we ask that you might take a moment from your busy schedule to look through the enclosed sponsorship information linked below. As always, we sincerely appreciate the support of your businesses and thank you for your consideration.
Thank you, The Elmira Street Painting Festival Steering Committee
