This year we are welcoming artists from all around California (and primarily from Humboldt County). Stay tuned: we will be announcing our artists in the next few weeks.

After seven awesome years of adding color to the city, the organizers have decided that this will be the last year of the Eureka Street Art Festival…at least for now. The Festival takes an immense amount of work and money to put on each year, and the three organizers are ready to move on to new projects. Through the Festival, over 100 new murals have been added to Eureka. Just like the murals, this Festival was never designed to last forever.

Want to help make this last year incredible? We are still seeking sponsors - please email us if you are interested: eurekastreetartfestival@gmail.com.

The Eureka Street Art Festival’s mission is to create intentional, accessible art that enlivens public spaces, stimulates community revitalization, and attracts visitors to Eureka. Our long term aim is to recreate this event annually and continuously introduce new public art in Eureka. Excess funds raised by the Festival will go towards the maintenance of existing public art throughout the city.
