The Int'l Sarasota Chalk Festival will perform in downtown Sarasota November 8 - 10, 2024 as this large cultural performance event returns to its original location where it last performed in November 2013 during its Legacy of Valor themed event. This year, in addition to the pavement artists, the festival will bring together delegations of 'Flower Carpet Artists' marking the first time in US history for these delegations to come together on US soil. These artists use natural materials such as flowers, sand, salt and sawdust to create large tapestries on the ground. 

NOW: The 'Avenue of Art'' is taking place in historic Burns Square, downtown Sarasota along the 500 block of South Pineapple and Orange Avenues. Phase III has over 300 hand-painted images celebrating Sarasota County and community. Restoration of works as well as new have been added and 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.
