About Via Colori Festival
Via Colori® is a festival in which hundreds of artists, community organizations, vendors, and partners come together to host the most creative festival in Kentucky. The festival has been in the Elizabethtown area for almost a decade and is moving to Louisville in celebration of its ten year anniversary in Kentucky. Approximately 100 artists will participate with the intent of making an artistic masterpiece on a large scale, directly on the sidewalks of Waterfront Park in Louisville. We will have music on three stages, craft and direct sale vendors, art, art vendors, family friendly activities such as child street painting and superhero visits, a family photo tent, additional non-profits in an awareness section, a food court, street performers, costumed characters, an art gallery dedicated to child created pieces, and of course, street art.Find Out More

Sponsor An Artist
Artist sponsorships directly benefit foster children! Sponsorship is a chance to support the important work of New Beginnings Foundation. Without strong community support, New Beginnings would not be able to offer the wide range of services that support the social and emotional well-being of the special children we serve.Sponsor
How Via Colori Helps
A portion of the proceeds from the Via Colori Street Painting Festival will be used to create “First Night in Placement” Care Baskets. These will include things such as nightlights, books, toothbrushes, soothing bath bombs and soaps, blankets and age appropriate things for both the kids and parents. In addition, proceeds this year will include launching the creation of a specialized Trauma Informed Caregiving team as a resource to any foster parent in the state. This is vital because foster parents often do not have the resources or support systems that understand trauma. They will be able to utilize these babysitters to promote their wellbeing and to insure that their foster children are cared for appropriately.Become A Sponsor
