The Amarano Beat

Experience the Downtown Burbank Arts Festival

The Media (and Animation) Capital of the World is about to flower forth with an amazingly varied spread of art, artists, and art appreciators, and Hotel Amarano will serve as a superb base camp of boutique luxury for the occasion.

The event in question is a two-day street fair celebrating its 15th year in 2018: the Downtown Burbank Arts Festival. By the numbers, it’ll encompass four downtown blocks (between Angeleno Avenue and Magnolia Blvd.), showcase better than 200 artists, and draw some 20,000 festivalgoers—and, take it from us, you’re going to want to be among them!

The 2018 Downtown Burbank Arts Festival

This year’s Downtown Burbank Arts Festival—which comes our way courtesy of the Downtown Burbank Partnership, West Coast Artists, and the Creative Talent Network—takes place Saturday, April 14th and Sunday, April 15th, and with plush and stylish accommodations at Hotel Amarano you’re just a hop, skip, and a jump away.

The range of art on display will be head-spinningly awesome, from oil paintings, jewelry, collage, blown glass, and pottery to the cutting-edge creations of visual-effects wizards and video-game artists. Prominent Disney animators will also be a part of the all-ages gala.

You’ll find the animation, visual effects, and video-game artists arrayed along San Fernando Blvd. between Angeleno and Orange Grove avenues, and “traditional handmade artforms” from Orange Grove to Magnolia Blvd.

Besides art for sale and appreciation, the Downtown Burbank Arts Festival will feature book signings by animators and authors, a Teen Art Challenge (with the theme “Illustrate Your Favorite Songs”), Sketch Fever drawing sessions, a Doodle Run, live music, chalk artists working their magic in front of the Burbank Town Center, and a paint-your-own-scarf activity presented by CreateAlive.

When thirst and appetite get the better of you, meantime, have no fear: You’ll be able to fuel up right along the festival thoroughfare courtesy of the Verdugo West Brewing Co. Beer Garden at Market City Caffe’s patio. (Verdugo West, incidentally, is among the numerous top-shelf craft breweries right here in Burbank that we recently profiled here at the Hotel Amarano blog.)
