Chula Vista ArtFest is looking for artists and vendors for the event

Chula Vista Artfest is back for 2024

Calling all artists, vendors, and art enthusiasts! The much-anticipated Chula Vista ArtFest is back for its second year and will be bigger and better than ever. Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 10, from noon to 6 p.m. at the City Hall Complex. This free-to-attend community event is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the incredible talent and diversity of local artists in Chula Vista and the South Bay area.

I remember attending the event last year and being shocked at the number of vendor booths, live music, and other activities. It was a great event that the community needed to know about. The live music alone was amazing.

Celebrate Local Chula Vista Art and Talent

The Chula Vista ArtFest showcases the vibrant art scene within our community. Last year’s event was a huge success, drawing crowds from all over the region to enjoy a day filled with creativity, music, and delicious food. This year, we’re planning an even more exciting lineup featuring an arts and crafts market, an art showcase, live music, interactive art installations, live painting sessions, food trucks, and much more.
