The City of Hillsboro is thrilled to announce a new, five-year partnership with Tualatin Valley Creates to host and serve as a sponsor of La Strata dei Pastelli Chalk Art Festival: a two-day, open-air arts festival happening the third weekend of July.  

Downtown Hillsboro will be transformed over two days by nationally recognized, professional, and local large-scale chalk artists. In addition, the festival will feature a performance stage showcasing dance groups and musicians, interactive demonstrations for all ages, unique art vendors, and delicious refreshments. Visitors can even make their own small-scale chalk art.  

La Strada dei Pastelli will be a signature event for Hillsboro’s Cultural Arts District, which was adopted in 2019 to support and enhance arts and culture in the City of Hillsboro by contributing to a vibrant, thriving Downtown area. The festival is an opportunity to create new connections based on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI), support small businesses, and grow cultural tourism.  

Enriching Hillsboro’s already thriving arts scene, La Strada dei Pastelli will help further put the Hillsboro Cultural Arts District on the regional and national map as an arts destination, while welcoming Hillsboro community members to experience exceptional, free arts programming.
