Chalk It Up! Chalk Art & Music Festival
Since 1991, the Chalk It Up! Festival has been delivering fantastic family fun and has become one of the longest-running and most popular festivals in the Sacramento region. In recent 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, live music, vendors, and more.
Last year, for our 30th Anniversary, we changed the Chalk It Up! Festival in accordance to local, state, and federal guidelines. “Chalk It Up! Around Town!” was a way to celebrate arts and artists and stay safely distanced by bringing the chalk art to life on sidewalks, parking lots and driveways throughout the greater Sacramento region and featured three-days of Sacramento live music streaming with local artists who shared their talents from our virtual stage.
This year, for our 31st Chalk It Up! Festival we are bringing it all together. Chalk It Up! Chalk Art & Music Festival will be at Fremont Park and Around the Town!
At our Fremont Park home we will have sponsored chalk artists, plus live local music, local food and craft vendors, and plenty of refreshments and fun for all generations.
Throughout Sacramento there will be sponsored chalk artists at local parks, neighborhoods, and throughout business districts to share the celebration!
There are many ways to get involved. Sponsor, Volunteer, or just help to spread the word in support of our mission to empower and support the next generation of Sacramento artists and the programs that inspire them!
