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!
ABOUT THE CHALK IT UP CHALK ART & MUSIC FESTIVAL
The Chalk It Up! Festival has been held annually since 1991 and has become one of the longest-running and most popular festivals in the Sacramento region. In the last few years, our three-day Chalk It Up! Festival has amassed crowds of over 60,000 people who come to enjoy the hundreds of sidewalk chalk art masterpieces and live music, vendors, and more. We are proud to have kept this festival free and family-friendly since 1991 for our region!
