About Via Colori Festival

At The Big Four Bridge Lawn in Waterfront Park

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 2017.

Over 150 artists participate with the intent of making an artistic masterpiece on a large scale, directly on the sidewalks of Waterfront Park in Louisville.

Via Colori is a free and pet friendly event.

Via Colori will also feature music on our main stage, bounce house, a maker mobile, kid friendly activities, food trucks, additional non profits, animal rescues and resources, a food court, street performers, cosplay and costumed characters,  and of course, street art. 2022 will be super exciting as we are adding an evening candle lit art walk Saturday from 6p-8p! We are looking forward to seeing you in 2022.

Via Colori® Kentucky is part of a series of street painting festivals held throughout the United States. It is a celebration of art and creativity in which a family of artists and volunteers come together to encourage the community at large to value and appreciate the arts. All proceeds from Via Colori® Kentucky 2022 directly benefits the Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana. Your participation gives the gift of opportunity – a chance for girls to develop the skills that will benefit them the most and have the experiences that encourage them to be courageous and confident.

Festival Operations

Henri Matisse once said, “Creativity takes courage.” This quote has become a staple of the Kentucky Via Colori Street Painting Festival over the last seven years. Today we are embracing that quote in a new way. We are delighted to announce that Via Colori is coming back to the Louisville Waterfront for 2022.

We are moving forward with the plan to host the festival on the third weekend of October. Our team is working furiously to make this a reality.

The New Year brings change to the festival. We want to take this opportunity to tell you about the biggest change to effect Via Colori this year. We are extending our Saturday hours to 8p to host our first annual candle lit art walk. Details will follow as we finalize planning!

Via Colori is truly the most creative festival in Kentuckiana. We have over 150 street painting artists that donate their time to help the festival meet its goal of enriching and supporting the community while raising much need funds for a charitable organization. There are sponsors, vendors, musicians, volunteers, and attendees that dedicate time, energy, and funds to make this event happen every year. We never want to lose sight of that legacy.

We are thrilled to announce that Via Colori® 2022 will continue to support the efforts of Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana. Investing in girls will change the world. Girl Scouts of Kentuckiana provides leadership opportunities and outcome-based programming to more than 10,000 members, throughout their 64 counties in Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Supporting Via Colori will help to benefit every Girl Scout in the council by providing needed resources, programs, and support.

When girls are given the opportunity, incredible things happen. We have the reach and experience, and with your support, every Kentuckiana girl will have the opportunity to become someone amazing!

In addition to all the awesome that is Via Colori,  we want to let you know that we will still be helping our local communities in profound ways. Hope’s Closet, which benefits foster children, will still be actively involved in the festival. We will still have musicians on our main stage, vendors, STEM Activities, a maker trailer, a food court, cosplay guests, a TARDIS and of course our street painting. We will still work with local charities, organizations, animal rescues, and community resource programs to bring hope and help to our community in authentic ways.

We hope that you will be as excited about this change as we are. We can’t wait for the third weekend in October!
