Event Overview:

This high quality, community-friendly event is hosted by the Palo Alto Chamber of Commerce. In the past it has attracted over 150,000 people every year from throughout California and the West Coast. The festival-celebrating its thirty-fourth year-takes place on tree-lined University Avenue in beautiful downtown Palo Alto, a vital economic area 35 miles south of San Francisco.

PLEASE NOTE: the City of Palo Alto has a ban on the use of plastic & paper bags for carrying purchased merchandise. The Chamber of Commerce highly recommends that festival attendees bring their own tote bags for easy transportation of multiple purchases. In addition, the Chamber of Commerce will be selling attractive and roomy, cloth festival bags for just $5 at its booth for the convenience of attendees.

The backbone of the festival and the key to its success are the three hundred fine artists and crafters whose display booths are placed back-to-back along University Avenue. These exhibitors are the reason why this festival attracts such a high percentage of fine artists and crafters whose work you'll see only at a few select shows on the West Coast.

NEW THIS YEAR! Join in the fun and enter our Do-It-Yourself Chandelier Contest.

And, always a crowd-pleaser, the Italian Street Painting Expo, sponsored by the Palo Alto Weekly, will again offer sixty chalk artists creating larger-than-life works of art all weekend long on Tasso Street. This year's beneficiary of the funds raised by the Italian Street Painting Expo is Palo Alto's Youth Community Service.

Local participation is high at this event. The Palo Alto Parents & Professionals for Art are the organizers and beneficiaries of the kids' art & crafts area called the Kids' Art Studio. Also, the Kiwanis Club of Palo Alto will again manage and serve the micro-brews and fine wines that can be found throughout the festival.
