Tivoli Street Painting Festival

Tivoli Street Painting Festival


The annual Tivoli Street Painting Festival will take place on October 8th, 2016. The Village of Tivoli seeks artists of all ages and backgrounds for the 15th consecutive year since 2001. The village marks out and paints (black or white) approximately 150 8’x8′ squares along Broadway Street through town.

Artists register (either that day or through pre-registration) and receive free boxes of pastels and choose their square on a first come, first choice basis. Children must be attended by an adult, but no other restrictions apply.

Live music – folk, fiddle, bluegrass and the like – keeps the mood lively. Participants laud the quiet, low-key character of the festival, its inclusiveness and the way it celebrates the artistic commitment of this Hudson Valley town.

This project is made possible in part through a grant from the Dutchess County Arts Council, administrator of public funds through the New York State Council on the Arts’ Decentralization Program.
