Street Painting Festival

Street Painting Festival logo and boy painting
 

Since 2000, the Rotary Club of Oak Ridge has sponsored the annual Oak Ridge Street Painting Festival. The purpose of this festive occasion is to raise money for scholarships for students at Roane State Community College, thus helping provide an educated workforce for businesses moving to our region. The festival allows local artists of all ages to showcase their talents and provides a fun time for the Oak Ridge community. In the past 21 years, your generous donations have allowed Roane State to award more than 100 scholarships totaling over $200,000!

The theme for this year’s event is Honoring Scarboro 85. The Scarboro 85 were the first Black students to integrate Oak Ridge High School and Robertsville Junior High on September 6, 1955. We remember and honor the courageous “Scarboro 85” as part of our Oak Ridge history.

Artists that create chalk art clearly inspired by the Honoring Scarboro 85 theme will take part in a chance to win a bonus prize of $25.
