The Chalk Festival is a cultural arts event that features yearly the largest gathering of renowned pavement artists and largest number of 3D illusion pavement paintings in the world.
The Chalk Festival is open to the public November 9 through 12 from dawn to dusk. Hundreds of pavement artists perform on the asphalt surface using it as their canvas and chalk as their medium to create oversized paintings as the public is invited to watch as the viewer. A concert stage as well as a smaller acoustic stage will be active for the 4 days of festivities to enhance the theme with music, dance, theater and magic. The food court will feature several local restaurants and a beer garden. The family fun area will have vertical walls and pavement areas for the inspired visitor of any age to create mimi masterpieces of their own.
