Our Annual SAG 2020 Travel Guide Is Here!

Welcome to our first annual Street Art Goods Travel Guide, which may tempt you to arrange your 2020 travel around seeing great street art (we hope it does) and attending some bombass parties (who wouldn't want to do that?). By no means is this a complete guide to street art events, mostly it's festivals, with a few curveballs thrown in. The first half of our guide covers February through June. The second half, covering July through December, will go out in a couple of weeks. Keep an eye on the Street Art News section of our website for other upcoming street art events.
