Annual Riverfront Chalk Festival & Art Contest

On August 19th, 2017, the downtown parking lot, home to the CityArts Mosaic Mural, also known as Parking Lot “N”, will host Amazement Square’s 3rd Annual Riverfront Chalk Festival & Art Contest.  Artists of all ages, backgrounds and abilities will bring this parking lot to life, creating colorful chalk masterpieces with the theme “LOVE & PEACE” while competing for coveted prizes.

In addition to the chalk art, we invite the community to soak up the last moments of summer with a downtown block party at Amazement Square featuring various summer activities: food trucks, crafts, and games! Amazement Square will also open its doors for just $3 per person ALL DAY! 

 

Online Registration for the Chalk Festival has closed.

If space is available, we will take day-of registrations at the event. 

Good luck to all the Chalk Festival contestants!
