Paint the Port is a family-fun event held by the Freeport Art Museum in downtown Freeport where hundreds of 4x4 squares are transformed by the community.


All ages are invited to get creative and paint the street squares using washable, tempera paints provided.


Together we will create a vibrant masterpiece on the streets of downtown Freeport. Gather your friends and family together and get your paint on!

Paint the Port is a fundraiser to bring vibrancy and creativity to our community.


2021 net proceeds will support the completion of the Arts Plaza in downtown Freeport.


The Arts Plaza is one major step towards revitalizing the downtown district and will serve as a dynamic civic space that couples community engagement with art and cultural activities.

In 2021 we are excited to coordinate with Eats and Beats. Eats and Beats will take place on Chicago Ave, at the intersection of Chicago and Spring. This two-day event will bring several local food vendors and a variety of musical performances downtown.


Our theme for Paint the Port 2021 is "Be the light; See the change", which celebrates each person's role in creating a brighter future for Freeport.
