MARK YOUR CALENDAR for NOVEMBER 10-13, 2017!
The 2017 Chalk Festival will be celebrating its 10-Year Anniversary November 10-13 - brining together the biggest family of Chalk enthusiasts. For a few weeks this "Chalk Festival Family" will come together to showcase the largest installations of 3D illusions and fine art on pavement by renown artists from around the world, while remaining approachable for anyone who whats to give it a try!
Featured events include the Pavement Music Festival, Young and Young at Heart interactive, Poetry, Magic and more!! The festival will have MORE new pavement so visitors will be afforded more space to view the artwork and no more walking on the grass to see it! We are working to include hot air balloons and other ways to get to see the art from a different perspective. More tents, resting areas, beverage stations, entertainment and amenities - a 10-year anniversary unlike any other!!
The Chalk Festival is a performance art event. As a visitor you are not a passive participant but an essential part of the artists creative process. You get the chance to see behind the scenes while artists perform using chalk as their medium and the road surface as their canvas creating oversized fine art masterpieces and 3D interactive illusions. By attending and bearing witness to the creative process, you are humanizing the artwork, the artist and the fine art experience. Together we all create a "Museum in Motion."
PLAN YOUR TRIP to the Chalk Festival November 10-13, 2017.
We HIGHLY recommend you purchase the multi-day unlimited (discounted) pass for $25 to see the entire process all 4 days, meet the artists, listen to the variety of bands, visit vendors and enjoy the serenity of the open space afforded at the venue:
$5 DAY 1, Nov. 10, Friday - On the first day the artists creating oversized 3D and vertical illusions are about 1/2 way or more completed because many start as early as November 4th. The artists creating traditional 12' x 12' oversized masterpieces start this morning and by the end of the day will be 1/3 completed with their artwork. It is a really great day to come as the crowds are less and the opportunities to meet artists is greater.
$10 DAY 2, Nov. 11, Saturday - Most of the 3D interactive illusions are completed. The traditional paintings are 2/3 done by the end of the day on Saturday. This too is a really wonderful day to come because we feel the ability to meet these world renown artists is what this festival is all about.
$15 DAY 3, Nov. 12, Sunday - All of the artwork is completed by the end of the day with the majority completed by noon. This is the last day to meet the artists, discuss their artwork and see the creative process in motion. This is the WOW day when you not only get to see the artist completing their final touches but you get to take pictures and meet them too. This is an absolutely must day and we recommend coming as early as 8 AM on this day and stay for a few hours, listen to music, ride in a hot air balloon and casually stroll and enjoy the pavement art.
$10 DAY 4, Nov. 13, Monday - The artwork is all completed and ready for those perfect photos. The majority of the artists are gone, flying and driving home. This is a viewing day, a good day for those what want a more relaxed experience, interact with the 3D illusions and listen to music and grab a bite to eat.
