2024 I Madonnari Chalk Art Festival

Come & Be Inspired!

Memorial Day Weekend: May 25 – 27

Location: Old Mission Santa Barbara, 2201 Laguna St, SB, CA 93105

Join Santa Barbara Permaculture Network for our sponsored art square at the 38th Annual I Madonnari Chalk Art Festival that takes place every Memorial Day weekend at the Old Mission Santa Barbara.  Sponsored by the Children’s Creative Project, Santa Barbara Permaculture Network began participating in 2020 with Nature inspired art squares, with themes that included beaver & wetlands; the amazing world of fungi; coastal kelp forests; & the biologically alive soils beneath our feet.

 Our 2024 theme shares the work of ecological design pioneer John Todd and his “Living Machines” that work with nature using only sunlight, plants, & microorganisms to clean & restore waterways & oceans from toxic waste created by human activity. In 2023 John Todd was honored with the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network Eco Hero Award.

The I Madonnari Festival is special as it gives the public an opportunity to watch the artists in action, sometimes with a chance to talk with them.  For the second year, local artist Kristen Sell will be the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network featured artist.

The festival also has music, food, and visitors from around the world attending, a chance meet new friends at the tables provided on the Mission lawn.

Our art square is usually located below the Old Mission steps, on the right side as you face the Mission.  Hope to see you there!
