The 2021 Chalk It Up! Festival is going back to Fremont Park AND continuing with the new Around the Town format September 4-6, 2021!

Sponsored Chalk Artists

Sponsored Chalk Artists will be matched to a Patron Sponsor to create a chalk art square in Fremont Park or one of our business district activation spaces. The location will be determined in advance of the festival and included in our virtual event map in compliance with public health recommendations.

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:

  • Sponsored Chalk Artists can request a sponsor match, enlist a business, organization, or family member to be their Patron Sponsor, OR they can sponsor their own square.
  • Sponsored Chalk Artists Artists will receive a start-up kit, including $25 worth of premium sidewalk chalk pastels
  • Sponsored Chalk Artists will be listed on our virtual event map, including a link to your website and a biography (if provided by August 29th).
  • Sponsored Artists agree to include their Patron Sponsor’s name in 6” tall letters on the bottom of their art square, unless another arrangement has been made between the artist and the Patron Sponsor.

Independent Artists

Artists of all ages and skill levels will be able to participate in the virtual festival from their own homes throughout the Sacramento region. You can create your chalk masterpieces in driveways, on sidewalks, in back patios, and parks.

Here’s how it works:

  • Independent Chalk Artists will supply their own chalk and can create whatever they want
  • Independent Chalk Artists will send photos of their work to be featured in our online gallery
  • While there is no fee for becoming an Independent Chalk Artist, we do ask that you donate to Chalk It Up so we can continue to support the next generation of Sacramento artists. The recommended donation for Independent Chalk Artists is $25
