La Bella Strada-An Italian Street Painting Festival

  • May 14, 2016
  • 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
  • Mt. Vernon Avenue, Alexandria, VA

La Bella Strada is a modern street painting festival that originates from an ancient Italian art form. 

Organized by the parents of students who attend The Del Ray Montessori School, this unique event takes place along Mt. Vernon Avenue throughout the day on Saturday, May 14, 2016.

The festival brings artists, energetic volunteers, and local businesses together to enliven our cottage neighborhood with vibrant colors, crowd-drawing masterpieces, and a one-of-a-kind experience of witnessing the creation of large-scale chalk paintings directly on the sidewalks. Similar festivals have successfully brought splendor and visibility to communities around the world.

La Bella Strada in Del Ray will also feature a Casa de Bambini (“Children’s House”) area to provide a space for young artists to create a collective chalk masterpiece of their own, as well as designated sidewalk squares where families and individuals can participate in making their own colorful work of art.
