Take a leisurely stroll through the charming neighborhoods of Downtown Newburgh and immerse yourself in the vibrant tapestry of family-owned shops and restaurants that line the streets.

Art On The Block
Join us for the next edition of “Art on the Block” Art Market and Chalk Fest, being held on the last block of Broadway between Grand St and Colden St. overlooking the Hudson River. This is an outdoor urban art marketplace featuring over 35 artists from various parts of the Mid Hudson region. There will be a wide mix of mediums and styles on display by artists with skills ranging from professional to up-and-coming. Many artists will be doing ‘live’ painting demonstrations. Come watch as artists create large scale chalked artwork right on the pavement. A children’s chalking area will be available at no cost. Food trucks will be on site including espresso and cotton candy carts. The block will be filled with the sounds of a live production of cinematic grooves.

Art on the Block takes place 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. in front of Newburgh Mercantile, 75 Broadway. Rain date Sunday May 12.
