Street painting to take over San Rafael

June 13, 2018 by  

The Italian Street Painting Marin specialty weekend returns to San Rafael later this month.

The festival theme for this year is ‘Wonders of Space & Time’. There will be over a hundred Madonnari (street painters) creating and showcasing their works, along with other forms of entertainment. Children ages 2 to 12 can even try their hand at street painting, for a small fee.

There will be live music playing throughout the event. There are multiple bands lined up for the two days, with Moonalice headlining. The musical selections range from Tom Petty tribute, to bluegrass, to country rock and beyond. There will be food and drinks available throughout the event from local wineries and breweries, as well as local food trucks. The silent auction will feature items such as original works of art from the Madonnari, wine packages, and other treats. The raffle has some similar items, all of which were donated by local businesses.

The event promises to be a lot of fun, and will likely attract crowds, as it has in years past. Flyer printing for the event is underway; the design is available online for people to view as well. As the weekend will feature plenty of local businesses, flyers and business cards will no doubt go fast.

The event is scheduled for the weekend of June 23 and 24.
