Last Day Virtual Pasadena Chalk Fest, This Time With a Día de Los Muertos Theme

Published on Oct 10, 2021

The Pasadena Chalk Festival will go virtual for a second year in late October with a Día De Los Muertos, or Day of the Dead theme.

Citing “ongoing and recent additional restrictions,” the Light Bringer Project, organizers of the annual chalk festival, rescheduled the live, in-person event to June 18 and 19, 2022, Father’ Day Weekend, at Paseo Colorado.

It had been set to occur in-person this weekend, before the postponement. However, it will go forward virtually.

Through today, artists of all ages near and far can once again create chalk murals on their own sidewalks, outside their garages, or anywhere in their neighborhoods that it is allowed. 

Also through Monday, Nov. 1, participants are asked to submit photos or videos of in-progress and final works to the organizers, so these can be shared on Pasadena Chalk Festival’s Facebook page and other social media sites. 

That’s five days for participants to work on their murals, take videos or photos, and send them in for virtual display.

The festival is meant to honor Día De los Muertos as a day of remembrance and honoring loved ones and those who are important to our lives. It is also a day of celebration and fun. 

No prior registration is required, and there are no fees to submit photos and videos. 

Participants can send photos or 30-second to one-minute video snippets of their work by email to no later than the end of Monday, Nov. 1. 

Feel free to add to your chalk mural by creating a traditional altar or by including 3D elements of your choice. 

Don’t forget to sign your name under your mural so online viewers can see it in the photos or video you share.
