The final event of the Art Festival week.


The competition is the culminating event of the Plein Air Curaçao festival and will take place in the Wilhelmina Park, Punda.
Artists compete, in four different categories, in a 3-hour Quick Draw Paint-out. A jury will decide who will be the winners. Besides the competition there will be a lot of things going on in downtown to make it a full day of fun. There is a Kiddies Corner for kids, aged 4-12, to make their own painting, foods and drinks are for sale with various performances during the day.

The Downtown Management Organization (
DMO) is an important partner of Plein Air Curaçao. DMO mobilizes the merchants in Punda to organize a street fair on the last day of the festival. 

Activities include:

  • shopping with reduced prices and other offers;

  • food stands;

  • kids' areas with clowns, face painting, photo shoots, and kids' games;

  • many artisans display and sell their work while nonparticipating painters also display their paintings on the streets;

  • a motor show of classical and vintage cars (Wabi Club) and the bike club;

  • Moko Jumbies (stilts walkers and dancers) do their stunts;

  • different kinds of (live) music and dance groups make the streets of Punda vibrate with fun.
