MAY 2024



Mosaic Street Painting Festival

Sunday, May 26th | 12PM-5PM

Join us for the most colorful day of every year since 1996! The EEA Mosaic Street Painting Festival is not only seeped into the tradition of the East End but also the largest [and often only] event of it’s kind on Long Island! Chalk art squares are open to all ages. Live entertainment by EEA bands and other local groups. Kids’ zone. Art & maker vendors. Food trucks. And more!

Sponsors: Your funding supports this event, and the event supports your brand by connecting you to the East End art community!

Vendors: There is still space for both artisan vendors, food trucks, and nonprofits. Plus, there’s special pricing for EEA Members & nonprofits!

Artists: Your registration includes pastel chalk supplies. Sign up early to reserve your space and save!

Spectators: This event is free and open to the public for those who want to simply enjoy, eat, and shop the afternoon away!

Rain Date: Monday, May 27 2PM-5PM
