Pastels on 5th is an annual event taking place the second Saturday of September.
Pastels takes place on 5th Street, adjacent to the Loveland Museum/Gallery, in downtown Loveland, Colorado. This event works in partnership with the City of Loveland Cultural Services Department.
Pastels is a community wide event in which artists, businesses and downtown Loveland come together to transform 5th Street into a spectacular sidewalk gallery. This is a free, family friendly, community wide sidewalk chalk art event designed to highlight the thriving Loveland arts community.
The focal point of the event is the artwork created right on the sidewalk by local and regional artists using brightly colored pastels. Each year we have judges selecting their favorite works of art in our juried awards that include cash prizes for the winning artists. Additionally, community members get to participate by voting for their favorite works of art in our People’s Choice awards.
Pastels on 5th includes live music, food, an Artist Marketplace, and a children’s art area where kids can create their own sidewalk masterpieces!
