Mosaic Street Painting Festival
For one day, East End Arts converts the Downtown Riverhead area by the Peconic River into a celebration of the arts. It’s a day to stroll, enjoy the fresh air, watch artists in action, and participate in family-oriented activities. Music fills the air as do the enticing smells of the local food trucks. This family-focused event was inspired by the street artists of Grazie di Curtatone, Italy who gather each year for the Incontro Nazionale dei Madonnari where the streets of the village are converted into works of art in chalk.
Artists, musicians, and art lovers of all ages participate or watch as artists convert squares of the street into vibrant and moving works of art.
There’s something for everyone at this family-friendly event: Street Painting for all ages and skill levels, Live Music, Interactive Art, Kids Zone, Craft & Artisan Vendors, Food Trucks & Local, Restaurants, Fine Arts Sale, Drum Circle, and Dance & Theatre performances.
