2023 Pasadena Chalk Festival - CANCELLED

I was super bummed to hear the news today that the Pasadena Chalk Festival has been cancelled for 2023. The Paseo is under new ownership and the organizers are having a difficult time negotiating for the ability to hold it. In preparation for it, we had already bought our airline tickets, booked rental cars and hotels, and all that. 

Sad. It's been a tradition to go there on Father's Day weekend since even before the kids were born. And then it was tradition to go together, have them see what their Daddy and Uncle Ruston had worked hard on all weekend and have them help pull up the painters tape to finish everything off. 

I hope the Light Bringer Project can figure something out. I'll certainly miss seeing all my chalk festival friends this year.

  1. Super, super disappointed to hear the news!! :-( What a tradition, and what beautiful chalk art images by the various artists, both budding and experienced. I"ll miss seeing the colorful works, especially those Disney ones ;-) (my favorite is still the Disneyland logo in front of the castle...just love the colors, the subject matter, and the artists' attire!) Here's hoping that the tradition can be carried on in the near future. EOM
