What to Know

Chalkfest at Arbor Lakes is a free, 2-day street art festival with entertainment, food, and family fun! The Chalkfest at Arbor Lakes is featuring sidewalk chalk art by professionals, amateurs & art enthusiasts from across the world!

Yes, it's a competition, but who says you can't have 'fun' and 'competition' in the same sentence? Not us! Be sure to come both days to watch the artists chalk the streets of Arbor Lakes while they 'compete' with some of the best artists from around the world.

The Chalkfest Family Zone is located at the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes and features fun for the entire family! Music, food, games and ART! Learn to create art with chalk from volunteers providing guidance and helpful tips to help you create your masterpiece. Family chalking areas will be provided so bring your creativity along!
