Chalk-It-Up! invites you to join us in celebrating the talents of hundreds of local artists and musicians at Sacramento’s favorite family festival. The 26th Annual Chalk It Up to Sacramento will be held over Labor Day Weekend - September 3-5, 2016 - at Fremont Park in downtown Sacramento.

About Chalk It Up! We are a chartered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization created to benefit children's arts education and art activities in the Sacramento region. We have been part of the fabric of Sacramento’s creative community since 1991.   Funds for our grants program are raised through the annual chalk art festival. The grants are intended to advance education in all disciplines of the arts for young people in school-based or community-based settings. Chalk It Up has helped to fund hundreds of diverse arts programs for youth in our community.

About the Event The three-day event draws 30,000+ people each year and garners extensive media coverage around the region. Chalk It Up! features more than 200 artists creating chalk art masterpieces on the sidewalks; live music by more than two dozen acts; hands-on art activities for children and families, and much more. Community groups, craft booths and food vendors are included in the celebration. Access to the park and the event is always FREE to the public.   The festival engages 300 - 400 volunteers throughout the weekend including the participating artists, musicians, community groups, and the Board of Directors and Committees of Chalk It Up

About Fremont Park. The site, Fremont Park, is a high profile, one-square-block, City park located between 15th and 16th Streets and P and Q Streets in downtown Sacramento. 15th and 16th Street (Hwy 160) are the major north/south transportation corridors through downtown Sacramento. There is a RT light rail station ½ block from the park (16th St. Station) as well as bus routes serving the area, and all day parking is provided by Winpark Parking Garage on 16th & R Streets. All artwork that is created during the festival is usually left to the elements for most of the month of September, bringing hundreds of viewers to the park to see the chalk art created for our sponsors.
