Welcome to Chalk It Up!
Please join us Labor Day Weekend 2013 at Fremont Park, and throughout the year as Chalk It Up to Sacramento works to support the vibrant talent of our young artists.
Thank you Sacramento for an incredible 2012 festival weekend!
It’s extraordinary to see such a diverse crowd of people come together to share their talents freely and show what a truly beautiful community we have in Sacramento.
Special thanks to Jerry and Linda Perry for covering all the minute details that go into producing an event with so many moving parts; to Karen Ulep of CADA for polishing every facet of this diamond in the rough; to our treasurer Phyllis Hayes for keeping the ball rolling; to Melanie Bown for being a reassuring presence to our artists; to the sponsors who step up to make this festival possible; and to all the remarkable artists, musicians and volunteers who put forth their best efforts to make our city such a remarkable place to live.
