La Strada dei Pastelli Chalk Art Festival is an annual Washington County multi-cultural event unlike any other offered in the Portland Metro region. During this FREE two-day summer festival, the public will be able to see nationally-recognized and emerging visual artists use bold, colorful pigments to create larger-than-life drawings down the center of the street(s); most averaging 10’x10’.

Simultaneous to the visual arts exhibitions, local performing artists fill the air with rhythm and sound from the festival’s main stage. Enjoy watching the performances with food and beverages (including beer and wine) from a selection of food carts.

Local art vendors also line the streets offering unique items and inspirations to attendees. Children of all ages are encouraged to take part in hands-on activities being provided by local nonprofit organizations. The annual summer art festival, being held along E. Main Street between 1st to 4th in downtown Hillsboro on the 3rd weekend in July, combines community engagement and art appreciation into one FREE fun-filled weekend!
