Join HCA for the second Apalach Chalk Art Festival at Riverfront Park. $5 for chalk and a section of sidewalk for artists to create their chalk masterpieces. All ages are welcome, each age group will be judged and winners will be awarded. Music, food and fun will surround the artists and on-lookers for the second year in a row.

Participating artists will use a 5’x5’ square of concrete sidewalk at Riverfront Park. Each artist will pay $5 for a bundle of chalk and a square of the sidewalk, up to 3 squares may be purchased but only 1 bundle of chalk will be given.   Artists are encouraged to bring their own chalk and supplies such as professional chalks and pastels, spray bottles, towels, etc. to create their artwork.  The participants may bring items for inspiration and use in the creation, but chalk must be the prominent medium in the artwork. Beginning at 12PM, artists will have 2.5 hours to complete their artwork. At 2:30pm, the artwork will be judged and the winners will be announced at 3PM.
