All of Elmira Downtown's events energize the city's social, physical and financial resurgence by bringing together its diverse local residents to reactivate the downtown district as a gathering space and realize its potential as the core for cultural engagement, small businesses, and neighborhood to create a stronger, more united community.

The Elmira Street Painting Festival and Chalk It Up For Our Youth are part of Elmira Downtown Development's programs and service that promote a regional arts economy by making the arts and humanities available and accessible to all Elmira residents and visitors from the wider region to enhance the Elmira's quality of life. All of our events, including the Elmira Street Painting Festival happen because of strong partnerships, such as the City of Elmira, Chemung County, Corporate Sponsorship, the Arts Council of the Southern Finger Lakes, Surrounding Counties, and Community Partners.
