The festival program will include the creation of twelve large outdoor murals by local, national, and international artists over the span of eight days, as well as events with community partners within the CEZ, including the Little Mekong Night Market, walking tours, a beer crawl, and more


And More might be YOU!

We are inviting artists and makers in the CEZ to apply to put on a special happening during the community night for the Festival. The Chroma Zone organizing team will select four events to promote as part of the Festival program. 

We are looking for:

Your event must be family friendly, open to the public between 6 and 8 pm on Sept 12, include an activity or demonstration, and food and beverages.
