Bella Vita Fest

October 2024

Little Italy — India Street between Date and Grape

The tradition of street painting began in 16th century Italy with itinerant artists, many of whom had been brought into the cities to work on the huge cathedrals. When the work was done, they would often recreate the paintings of the Madonna onto the pavement. They became known as I Madonnari.​

Street painting thrives today through festivals throughout the world. Street painters prefer this temporary performance art form that is created live before your eyes on the asphalt.  Little Italy has not enjoyed a chalk art festival since 2016, and we are thrilled to bring these talented creators back to San Diego.​ More than 50 artists will fill the street with color and inspiration at this new festival.

Bella Vita Fest invites you to enter the gates and view the artwork, taste Italian wines, shop for Italian products and of course, indulge in delicious Italian food.​

A full lineup of musical performances adds to the ambiance and invites you to linger in San Diego’s Little Italy.
