Come join us for a colorful week in the street!
The Eureka Street Art Festival’s mission is to create intentional, accessible art that enlivens public spaces, stimulates community revitalization, and attracts visitors to Eureka. For the week of the festival, local and international artists will be painting murals and creating street art throughout Downtown and Old Town Eureka, focusing primarily on Opera Alley, which runs between 2nd and 3rd streets in Old Town. On Saturday, August 18th, we will celebrate the completion of the murals with a street fair where the public can enjoy the artwork, talk with artists, enjoy live music and visit our beer gardens along Opera Alley.
Our long term aim is to recreate this event annually and continuously introduce new public art in Eureka. Excess funds raised by the Festival will go towards the maintenance of existing public art throughout the city.
This week long Festival is sponsored by the Black Faun Gallery, Humboldt Cider Company and the City of Eureka and put on by a group of passionate citizens who live and work in Eureka.
