The City of Temecula’s Community Services Department hosted the 2021 Temecula Art & Street Painting Festival – A Hybrid Event on TUE, JUN 1 – SUN, JUN 6, 2021. The week-long event featured 20 Virtual Art Exhibitors on the Vendor Marketplace on the City of Temecula’s web site. Over the weekend 15 pre-registered Chalk Artists competed for the Best of Show ($100 prize) by chalk painting masterpieces on Main Street pavement just outside of City Hall in Old Town Temecula.

Temecula Mayor, Maryann Edwards said “We are thrilled to see live, In-Person Events back in Temecula and especially in the heart of Old Town. Although this was a Hybrid Event, it is one step closer to experiencing Temecula’s popular Special Events return to their full capacity. Thank you to all those who participated and shared their artistic talents with all of us and splashing the streets of Old Town Temecula with brilliant colors and uplifting messages.”
Community Services Commissioner, Kathy Sizemore added “Temecula’s Art & Street Painting Festival is one of many events celebrating beautiful, original artwork and vibrant imagery. I have had the privilege of attending many Art Mural unveilings since February of 2021 in Sam Hicks Monument Park, and this event is another family favorite. These unique opportunities and events provide local artists with high-profile, public exhibit spaces to showcase their homegrown talents. Visit Old Town Temecula to view them all, or view them online at your leisure on the City’s website.”
