East End Arts will host the Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival on May 28, the only community outdoor art event of its kind found anywhere on Long Island.
The presentation outlined the ongoing development of the downtown area, including plans for the riverfront and town square, and also unveiled plans for two parking garages off East Main Street not previously presented to the board.

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.
The 25th annual Community Mosaic Street Painting Festival brought colorful chalk art, music, dance and family fun to East Main Street yesterday.
