The 21st annual Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival, presented by East End Arts, will return on Sunday, May 28 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. in downtown Riverhead. The beloved festival features street painting - an art form that dates back to 16th century Italy called "I Madonnari" where street painters created works of art in front of cathedrals to pay homage to the Virgin Mary. Today, street painters at the Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival create images ranging from pop culture to historical figures, portraits to landscapes, and comedy to tragedy. It's a fun-for-the-entire-family event that includes fine arts and crafts fair, live music and performance, a drum circle, gourmet food trucks, and various arts, crafts, dance, and music activities.

This community-favorite Mosaic Street Painting Festival draws over 5,000 local residents and tourists to downtown Riverhead each year. Participants can look forward to celebrating the arts and being a part of a creative spirit. There is an impressive list of artists, artisans, and craft vendors featured at this year's event, including Graziano Photography, East End Wood Designs, Giving Tree (hand enameled butterfly, flower, and leaf jewelry), Green Eyed Chick, Henna Graphics, Luluknits, The Art Nanny, Resonant Handcrafts, and Yan Yan Liang jewelry.

Admission to the event is free. In the case of rain, the event will be held on Monday, May 29 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival is located on East Main Street, between Roanoke Avenue and East Avenue, and on the grounds of East End Arts which is located at 133 and 141 East Main Street. For more information, call 631-727-0900 or visit www.eastendarts.org
