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.

This annual festival started in 2018 and each year focuses on a different area of the city. The goal is to continuously introduce new public art in Eureka while exciting and engaging the community. Excess funds raised by the Festival go toward the maintenance of existing public art throughout the city.
This week long Festival is sponsored by the Humboldt Cider Company, Pen+Pine, and the City of Eureka and put on by a group of passionate citizens who live and work in Eureka.
In compliance with California state mandates, and in consideration for the health and safety of our residents, public events and festivals have been cancelled or postponed. Before making plans, please check the event or festival website or Facebook page.
Some arts and culture events are now happening online. Check them out at our Events for Current Month page for more information.
