Chalk Festival

Kids and adults enjoy this event where community members join professional artists in using the walkways around the Fine Arts Garden as a colorful canvas.

Since 1990, the chalk festival is a modern expression of a Renaissance tradition from 16th-century Italy in which beggars copied paintings of the Madonna by Raphael and his contemporaries, using chalk on the plazas outside cathedrals. Watching the chalk artists and enjoying the entertainment is free.
