The popular Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival will take place on Memorial Day weekend again this year, as it had every year since its debut in 1996 — until pandemic disruptions in 2020 and 2021. The daylong celebration of the arts and community will take place on East Main Street and on the grounds of East End Arts on Sunday, May 29, from 12 noon to 5 p.m.

For the first time in its 22-year history, the Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival had to be postponed due to rain. This year's festival was also the last with its founder at the helm, as East End Arts executive director Patricia Snyder prepares to retire from the organization at the end of the year.
With rain in the forecast tomorrow, the street painting festival will take place on Monday, May 29 from 2 to 5 p.m.
The 21st annual Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival drew a great crowd to downtown Riverhead today, where chalk artists created colorful and often masterful works of art on the pavement canvas of East Main Street.
