[ARCHIVED] Temecula Community Services Department Hosts 2023 Temecula ArtFest on FRI, SEP 15 & SAT, Sep 16.


The City of Temecula’s Community Services Department will host the 2023 Temecula ArtFest featuring Cartoon-A Paloozah! 

Formerly called the Temecula Art & Street Painting Festival, this fan-favorite event will be held on FRI, SEP 15, 2023, from 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm, and SAT, SEP 16, 2023, from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, located at Town Square (41902 Main Street) and surrounding event areas in Old Town Temecula. 

Paintings, ceramics, jewelry, and photography set the stage for a weekend of creativity and talent through the sold-out outdoor Art Exhibition.  An exciting new addition this year is our free Fun Zone!  In lieu of a chalk competition, the Fun Zone will include a designated chalk art area for young artists to create pavement masterpieces!   No registration required, first come first serve. 

City of Temecula Mayor Zak Schwank stated, “Arts & Culture are foundational to quality of life for vibrant and resilient communities.  Temecula ArtFest is our annual, creative, street fair that showcases various arts, crafts, and photography exhibits.  We proudly partner annually with Bigfoot Art Classes to present Cartoon-A Paloozah! which is designed for comics and anime fans.  Come celebrate our colorful, innovative, and growing Arts & Culture community in Old Town Temecula.  We hope to see you engage with and support our local artists and enthusiastic participants!”

Temecula’s own Mini Con, Cartoon-A Paloozah! is back.  Fans of anime, cartooning, and comics can come together to represent and support their favorite fandoms.  Cartoon-A Paloozah! will include a sold-out indoor art vendor area, an Art Contest, and a Cosplay Contest.  All contest winners will receive a cash prize. Applications for the contests will close on FRI, SEP 1, 2023.  This is a free, in-person event for all ages.
