Burbank Arts Fest Returns in May

The Downtown Burbank Partnership, in collaboration with Jackalope Arts, brings the Downtown Burbank Arts Festival back on Saturday and Sunday, May 14 and 15, from 11a.m. to 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The Downtown Burbank Arts Festival brings together 100-plus inventive artisans selling handmade housewares such as candles and ceramics, fashion and accessory designers, beauty products and visual art for a one-of-a-kind festival experience unique to Southern California.

Attracting more than 20,000 attendees during the weekend, all are invited to experience the creative process, mingle with artists and browse more than local 600 shops and restaurants. Acoustic musicians will be roaming the festival performing tunes for guests as they shop their way through the event.

Guests are encouraged to visit the “Chalk Block,” showcasing more than 15 chalk artists who will be creating designs from film and television. Festival attendees are also encouraged to check out the murals located in Downtown Burbank paseos and inside businesses and take pictures of their favorite murals to share on social media with the hashtag: #DTNBUR.
