Placencia Sidewalk Arts & Music Festival

 

Come join us in Placencia for the 15th Annual Placencia Sidewalk Art Festival and enjoy Belizean culture through a variety of mediums

Every year, the small fishing village of Placencia comes alive as the central sidewalk is transformed into an interactive art gallery and music festival. Sculptors, painters, singers, photographers, musicians, and vendors from all over the country come to Placencia to display their art and sell a wide range of delicious local foods and drinks. With plenty of games and activities to entertain the whole family, the Placencia Sidewalk Arts and Music Festival is a must-see festival in Belize.

Placencia Sidewalk Art Festival

Starting at 10:00 am, the central sidewalk in Placencia comes alive, with every inch of the 4000 foot-long strip bursting with colorful art, beautiful handicrafts, gorgeous photographs, amazing sculptures, fun games, joyous music, poetry readings, mouthwatering food, and delicious drinks.

Why you have to attend the Placencia Sidewalk Art Festival

The village of Placencia does not have a standard main street; instead, it has a central sidewalk, which doubles as the main street in town. More than 4,000 feet long, but just four feet wide, the sidewalk qualifies the village of Placencia for the longest main street in the world.

Visitors to the festival will enjoy:

  • Amazing displays of local art and homemade handicrafts
  • Delicious food and drinks
  • Live music
  • Games
  • Vendors selling everything from handmade furniture to clothing
  • Poetry readings
  • Wood carvings and sculptures
