Chalk Art Festival

Come view elaborate chalk art designs by talented professional street painting artists at West 7th! Artists will begin at 10am so come early and watch the pieces evolve!

Prizes consisting of a combination of cash and gift cards for West 7th merchants will be given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners as determined by a panel of judges. There will also be a People’s Choice award given. If you are an artist interested in participating in the amateur competition, send your contact information here.
