Chalk It Up! aims to empower and support the next generation of Sacramento artists through targeted art grants for young artists and the programs that inspire them. Our free Labor Day Weekend Chalk It Up! Festival at Fremont Park is our biggest event of the year, bringing people from all over the region to downtown Sacramento in celebration of chalk art, music, and community. We’ve been at it since 1991!
The Chalk It Up Grant Program provides funding for educational arts or nonprofit organizations that provide or support arts education and training programs benefiting Sacramento region youth. This grant is open to all organizations and groups that have demonstrated a need for funding and a commitment to the arts.
