2017 Palo Alto Festival of the Arts

The Palo Alto Festival of the Arts takes place annually on tree-lined University Avenue in beautiful downtown Palo Alto, featuring 300 fine artists and crafters whose display booths are placed back-to-back along University Avenue.

Always a crowd-pleaser, the Italian Street Painting Expo will again feature 60 chalk artists creating larger-than-life works of art all weekend long on Tasso Street.

You can sample some of the gourmet food, fine wines, or micro-brews and enjoy the street entertainment throughout or at one of the stages. Kids can enjoy arts and crafts in the Kids’ Art Studio.

Stop by “Chopin and Chandeliers” at Cowper Street plaza to see, to hear and to perform. Witness a vast array of up-cycled Chandeliers and add an enticing street piano beckoning attendees to come play and together or free-styling performers to participate at will.

Please note: The Chamber of Commerce highly recommends that festival attendees bring their own tote bags for easy transportation of multiple purchases.
