BoldPas Pasadena is a day of Art & Play in Old Pasadena, staged in Old Pasadena’s historic 19th -century alleys. It offers a one-day-only opportunity to encounter artistic interventions in unique urban spaces. BoldPas features installations that are bold – showcasing bright colors, surprising scale, and unique materials; all invite direct interaction with kids and adults alike.
This family-friendly event features live music, food, libations, guided tours, and activities, all curated by local arts organizations and community partners.
17 installations will be on view for visitors who will see art that is innovative and embraces the “wow factor”: Walk under and marvel at a 60-foot canvas suspended high above one alley, meander through a giant sea of balloons, manipulate a serpentine tube made of beach balls, watch live painters transform walls and canvases with graffiti and street art, and so much more!
On event day, grab a map at one of three Info Booths to plan your self-guided tour of the installation sites (or use the event Google map – link on website). Then, stroll the unique urban spaces of Old Pasadena, meet artists, snap photos with large-scale artwork, and connect with Pasadena’s creative community.
