Sponsor An Artist
Be Part of the 14th Annual Elmira Street Painting Festival
You can sponsor an artist to show your support of the 14th Annual Elmira Street Painting Festival, held July 17th through July 18th. This is a unique and exciting way to advertise your business. This event transforms historical Downtown Elmira into a colorful street museum. Over the course of two days, close to 100 professional, amateur, and student artists captivate crowds as they take to the pavement armed with vivid pastel chalks and spend hours drawing on their hands and knees. Our volunteer artists create one of a kind masterpiece using chalk as the medium and the blacktop as their canvas in Downtown Elmira on East Water Street and Lake Street.
When sponsoring a street painting square, a business name or the name of a person being honored appears as the header of the square. With the Elmira Street Painting Festival attracting thousands of visitors each year, the sponsorship is an energetic, economical, and savvy way for businesses to promote themselves, while providing organizations and individuals with the opportunity to recognize someone special.
