About Event
Boasting the best artwork Belize has to offer! Celebrating over 18yrs of art along the historic Placencia Village sidewalk. Before the mid 80s, the narrow ribbon of conch shell grounded concrete that winds its way along one of Belize’s most beautiful beaches, was the only way to deliver goods to fishing folk and their families living in Placencia Village. The wheelbarrow or two that fetched essentials from arriving boats at the harbour may serve different purposes today. Still, they share the same picturesque route with strolling and frolicking feet belonging to children, lovers, friends (and frenemies), as well as the four-legged critters.

Over 18 years ago, a group of talented artists who formed the Placencia Peninsula Arts Association (PPAA) discovered how to make this charming walkway explode with color while highlighting local talents, and every February that vision continues to be realized.

Thanks to the efforts of the Placencia Chapter of the Belize Tourism Industry Association who have been organizing the annual Placencia Sidewalk Art Festival since the PPAA disbanded, as well as generous sponsors, the event has grown to see a diverse group of artists representing the entire country of Belize.
