Street Painting Festival in Old Town Temecula

This past weekend I had the opportunity to go to a Street Painting Festival in Old Town Temecula. This was my first time seeing a street painting festival up close. I was quite impressed.

Here are some photos of some of the best ones.

Look at the detail on this face. Amazing!

This one is kind of creepy. But still good.

I love the bright colors in this one. Doesn't look like it was quite finished.

Another fishy one with bright colors.

Who doesn't love Nemo?

Could you draw this good with chalk?

A look up the street at the festival. There was a lot of fabulous artwork. I wish I could have shared them all with you. I picked the ones I liked the best & weren't halfway covered in shade. It was really hard taking photos as I couldn't see on the screen what I was actually taking a photo of.

I am more impressed with the artists. It was about 100 degrees this weekend. Can't imagine the temp on the hot black top. Most had umbrellas or canopies above them while they worked.

I had a fun time in Old Town Temecula. So much so that I went back on Sunday with my family to enjoy a 2nd time. Saturday I went with my SIL & 2 nieces.

I'm posting this for both Three or More Tuesday hosted by The Gypsy's Corner & Outdoor Wednesday hosted by A Southern Daydreamer. Be sure to visit both blogs to see this weeks participants.

I have also added a 2nd post for Outdoor Wednesday all about where I live in Menifee, CA. If you want to go on the tour & see where I live, click here. And if you want to go on the Great American Town Tour, please visit Melissa at Huckleberry Prairie to see all the tour guides.


  1. That looks like so much fun. I wish we had a street painting festival around here.

  2. Thanks for sharing the photos of the street painting...they are fabuloous artists!

  3. Can I draw that well with chalk? Heck, I can't draw that well with a computer program! Great pics.


  4. It must be one of those "summer things" because I have just recently seen one advertised in our down town area.

    Such talent... i stand amazed.

  5. Wow. That's amazing. We saw someone painting on the street in Victoria, BC when we were there. That was the first time I had ever seen it.

  6. I love art festivals, so much fun to walk around and browse...Christine

  7. Hi Kim! I missed the street painting festival this year. I was camping at Hurkey Creek last weekend. I'm glad you posted pictures so I got to see what I missed! Hope this heat lets up, don't you?

  8. How fun is that! That first one is amazing!

  9. Wow, they are so talented. It is hard to imagine such detail in some of these with chalk.

    TFS these photos with us.

  10. Thank you for stopping by my blog and posting a comment re: Thrifty Treasures. So glad you did! I live in Corona and it was so great to find someone who lives not far from me! I'm sorry I missed the Temecula street painting festival! And I also enjoyed reading about Menifee ... missed that one too! I am now one of your followers! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Wow! These people are talented. Chalk and concrete - amazing. My fave is Nemo and that of the woman. Beautiful!

    happy Outdoor Wednesday!

  12. Amazing....these art festivals are so much fun to attend and watch the art become masterpieces before our very eyes.

    My Wordful/Outdoor Wednesday is all about something that was 'taken from our yard'. But at our request. Happy Wednesday to you.

  14. Those are awesome, there are so many talented people in the world. Thanks for sharing just another venue of art with a differnt twist!

  15. wow. These people are talented aren't they? Fun photos.

  16. Kim, thank you for posting this. I've never been to this type of street fair. Your photos are wonderful.

  17. Kim,

    This is an awesome post!! These artists are so talented. And it is sort of sad that their work is temporary. I would love to go to one of these festivals...

    You know, my son attended professional golf school in Temecula and lived in Carlsbad for 2 years. We had a great time visiting. You live in a wonderful neck of the woods!!


  18. I agree with you...those street paintings are just sooo amazing!!! We have them here too in San Diego and I make sure not to miss them when they're here.

  19. amazing, looks like fun!!!! happy ow

  20. Hi Kim, ooooo, this looks like such fun!!

    I love your header....gorgeous!


  21. WOW! Very talented and artistic folks.
    Happy OW!!

  22. I love this kind of street fair! There is one every year in our small old town, too. I never tire of seeing the creative genius these artists can crank out using just chalk and blending rags.

    The selection you're chosen to share are gorgeous! Thanks for taking us along for the fun. xo~m.

  23. You certainly found something different to do. I have never been to a virtual street painting festival before. It was fun! Happy 4th of July.
