Join all the artists, musicians, and lovers of the arts, young and old, who gather on the grounds of East End Arts and along the Peconic River for this day-long celebration of the arts, centering around the Street Painting Festival, fashioned after the Italian street painters “I Madonnari”, a street chalk art form dating back to the 16th century, as well as activities and entertainment for everyone.
