Eureka Street Art Festival Announced Third Annual Event
Eureka, CA – The third annual Eureka Street Art Festival will be spreading color throughout the Henderson Center neighborhood from August 10 - 15, 2020. Due to the virus, this year’s Festival will look a little different. There will not be any large gatherings (which sadly means no Block Party), but we are staying true to our mission of bringing colorful murals to brighten the neighborhoods of Eureka.
You are invited to walk through Henderson Center throughout the week-long Festival to watch the painting in progress, or participate in the Virtual Daily Art Walks, which will be streamed on Facebook Live and available to watch on our website. We will be publishing a self-guided walking tour on our website and social media leading up to the event to help you enjoy this event at your own pace, and in a physically-distanced and safe manner.
Stay tuned: we are beginning to announce the walls on social media, and we will be announcing this year’s Artists very soon.
