Monrovia Art in the Park is Back!

October 1, 2022

Register to Exhibit Today!

Our town is so ready to enjoy this show again, surrounding the historic Moreton Bay fig tree in Library Park, shown in this lush illustration by this year’s Featured Artist, Keith Slover.
We’re expecting a great turnout for this return of our main flagship event, now in its 60th year.

Art in the Park will feature more than 50 booths of local fine artists demonstrating and displaying their work along with the amazing work of local chalk artists in our ChalkFest. 

This show will include live musical entertainment, kids craft booths and family chalk art squares (with free chalk!), as well as teen urban art. Popular food trucks and restaurant booths will provide great food all day long..

Register NOW to share all the art you’ve been creating during the past two years of show downtime!
