0

(Rock Island, IL): Chalk Art Fest is coming up! The two day event will take place Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July 17. The fest is free to attend and features live outdoor music, food & drink vendors, children’s activities and more.

Date & Time

  • SATURDAY, JULY 16: 10 AM – 7 PM
  • SUNDAY, JULY 17: 10 AM – 5 PM

Location

SCHWIEBERT PARK | 101 17th St, Rock Island, IL

This FREE, live outdoor arts festival brings together hundreds of artists that spend hours transforming the cement pavement at Schwiebert Park into a museum of chalk art, while competing for cash prizes. Visitors strolling by can see the wonderful works of art as they come to life, vote for their favorite and even do some chalk art of their own, by taking part in the community piece.

A full line-up of live music, food trucks, concessions, beer garden, face painting and a kid’s chalk zone area, are all part of the festivities. Over $1,800 in cash prizes will be awarded including a people’s choice and youth category award.

The “paintings” are temporary, lasting only until the next rainfall, so you’ll want to catch a glimpse before they are gone. This will be a lively and colorful weekend, celebrating artists coming together to showcase their talents to the community and encouraging creativity in people of all ages and abilities with a unique art form!
