About Via Colori Festival

Saturday: 10am-6pm
Sunday: 10am-5pm

Via Colori® Kentucky 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 was in the Elizabethtown area for almost a decade and moved to Louisville in celebration of its ten year anniversary in Kentucky. Approximately 100 artists 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, vendors, art, art vendors, family-friendly activities such as child street painting and superhero photo-ops, 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.

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.

How Via Colori Helps image

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.

Could You Be A Foster Parent?

Children who enter therapeutic foster care bring with them special needs - most importantly, the need for a stable family life. These children, infants to age 18, are often the victims of abuse, neglect or abandonment. As a result, they may suffer from emotional, behavioral or developmental problems. Through the services of New Beginnings, families can acquire the training and assistance to enrich the life of a child, and children can receive the support they need.
