There are two Chalk Festival Events this year!

1.  The Chalk Festival 'Spirited Festivities' is coming up Halloween Weekend, Oct. 29 - Nov. 1, 2021. Four days of family friendly spooky fall fun will commence at the Venice Airport Fairgrounds where artists are afforded the space to create oversized masterpieces and large-scale group projects. The featured events such as the Pavement Music Festival and artists vendors, food court, beer gardens, event merchandise and performers will enhance the festivities. 

2. The Chalk Festival 'Avenue of Art' is taking place NOW in historic Burns Square, downtown Sarasota along the 500 block of South Pineapple and Orange Avenues. Phase I has over 100 hand-painted images celebrating Sarasota County Centennial, 1921 - 2021. Once completed, QR codes will be affixed to the corner of the artwork and tell the history of the image and about the artist that painted it. Come stroll the avenue!

The Chalk Festival an entirely 501c3 volunteer organization that is made up of volunteers, artists, sponsors and visitors who together create the "WOW" everyone has come to LOVE. We are a chalk family that works hard to brings together, each year, the largest gathering of renown pavement artists from around the world, while also presenting the largest number of interactive 3D illusions.
