Volume One & UW-Eau Claire present:

Chalkfest - Saturday, July 30, 2016

 

what it is

event picImagine a small park overtaken by a day-long firestorm of creativity and positive community energy, culminating in yards and yards of sidewalk space displaying amazing chalk artwork. That's Chalkfest. This annual event will take place all day on the beautiful UW-Eau Claire campus.  It's part urban art festival and part family-friendly fun.

when it is

Chalkfest takes place on Saturday, Saturday, July 30, 2016. While artists will get started on their drawings early, public hours will be between 11am and 7pm.

event pichow it works

UW-Eau Claire has several large sidewalks running through it (and sidewalks around the perimeter), where registered artists of all ages from throughout the community will create elaborate, large-scale chalk artwork. Throughout the day, artists will create their work as thousands of visitors watch their drawings come to life. Participants are encouraged to pre-register to reserve a spot.

 

 

what else happens

In addition to the artwork, on-site in the park there will be food, music, chalk-related games (including Pictionary tournaments, artist duels, etc.) and much more throughout the day and into the evening. There will also be an area for younger kids to participate in a large kids' mural.
