The annual event is a festival of art, music, and community in Downtown Loveland all to benefit Alternatives to Violence.

Pastels on 5th was created in 2011 and has grown every year since. Yearly, it raises about $30,000 for Alternatives to Violence

The 2018 event will be on Saturday, September 8, starting at 10 a.m.

The day will include professional, amateur and student artists creating art on the sidewalks of 5th- adjacent to the Loveland Museum/Gallery. The free-to-attend festival will also include food, live music, an artisan marketplace, and a children's art area.

It's a perfect 'Loveland' event where art meets community.
