2022 Chalk It Up Stage!
Our annual Chalk It Up! Chalk Art & Music Festival is our biggest event of the year, bringing people from all over the region to midtown Sacramento in celebration of chalk art, music, and community. We are one of the last family-friendly festivals that is still 100% free to the public. Some of our long-time regulars come all three days to see the incredible art and enjoy the music. For some families this is the first time that kiddos get to see live music. For some student musicians it is the first time they’ve ever played on a large public stage. For new bands it is an opportunity to be seen by a big crowd. It is a joyful experience, and a way to give back to the community!
The 32nd Annual Chalk It Up! Chalk Art & Music Festival is Labor Day Weekend, September 3-5, 2022, at Fremont Park in Midtown Sacramento. There will be artists creating works of chalk art on the sidewalk around the park, local food and craft vendors inside the park, and live music on the Chalk It Up Stage from Noon to 6 pm over the three day festival.
