The iMadonnari Festival takes place over the Memorial Day weekend at the Santa Barbara Mission. More information on the iMadonarri website.
Madonnari artists transform the Mission front plaza using pastels on pavement to create vibrant and colorful, temporary art pieces. The festival benefits the Children’s Creative Project, a nonprofit arts education program of the Santa Barbara County Education Office. The project serves 50,000 children in more than 100 schools with visual and performing arts workshops and performances throughout Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.
Festival hours are 10-6 daily. Admission is free.
