When: Saturday, September 30th, 2023
Get ready to immerse yourself in a world of vibrant creativity at Chalkfest 2023! Celebrating its sixth year of artistic excellence, this annual event promises to be bigger, better, and more engaging than ever before.
Join us on Saturday, September 30th as we transform the concrete and asphalt of ACPA into a mesmerizing tapestry of colors and imagination. Chalkfest 2023 will feature 14 professional and highly talented local artists collaborating with ACPA students, blending experience with youthful enthusiasm to create immersive, meaningful, and engaging chalk art masterpieces.
Our festival is not just about art; it's an immersive experience for all your senses. Savor local delights from a variety of food trucks, enjoy the sounds from three of our student bands, and explore the magical world of artistry in our public chalking area where you can unleash your own inner artist.
Don't forget to grab some ACPA merch to commemorate the occasion and support the creative spirit of our community! Plus, we're excited to introduce our new Creativity Village, an interactive space designed to spark your imagination and ignite your passion for the arts. Here, you can tie-dye or color your Chalkfest t-shirts, get your face painted or even create wearable buttons.
Chalkfest is a day filled with inspiration, entertainment, and unforgettable moments. Mark your calendars and be part of this incredible celebration of art and creativity!
