All roads lead to creativity, especially when 200 artists converge on the streets surrounding City Hall on November 23 – 24. Join us for a weekend full of color and creativity celebrating the artistic spirit of Houston. After seven successful years, the Via Colori ® Street Painting Festival, presented by LINN Energy, has grown into one of Houston’s signature art events and it remains the only street painting festival in the region.
Last year the FREE festival attracted more than 30,000 attendees with its art, live music, activities and food and drink. Via Colori benefits The Center for Hearing and Speech, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping deaf children listen, speak and read.
Celebrate the art and music explosion of Houston Via Colori before it all washes away.

History of Houston Via Colori
In 2006, The Center for Hearing and Speech(CHS) introduced Via Colori®, The Street Painting Festival, to the city of Houston. Created to celebrate the Italian Renaissance art of street painting, this annual event raises funds for CHS and increases awareness about hearing loss and services available for deaf children.
