Chalk the Walk will feature the work of over 500 artists of all ages and abilities! They will use 3/4 ton of chalk, with a downtown city street as their canvas.  Outdoor food vendors and musicians will be on hand throughout both days of the event.

 Each year a large collaborative piece of chalk art is recreated.  For a $10 donation to the festival, any interested festival participant will be given a set of chalk sticks and create a single 2’ by 2’ square of a portion of the image.  This centerpiece of Chalk the Walk will be colored with pastel chalk by dozens of artists of all ages and abilities.
