Main Street Arbor Lakes with Professional, student and amateurs

Main Street Arbor Lakes is the Artist's Zone with professional, student and amateur artists chalking their creations for you!  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 artist chalk the streets or Arbor Lakes.  While you are there you can vote for your favorite professional artist to win the People's Choice Award.  The People's Choice Award will go to the professional artists who collects the most votes. Proceeds will go to the winning artist's prize as well as help to bring this event back in 2017.

The Chalkfest Family Zone is on Main Street Arbor Lakes and features fun for the entire family! Music, food, games and ART! Family chalking areas will be provided so bring your creativity along! Everyone is invited to participate in Chalkfest at Arbor Lakes. In fact, we encourage it! There will be chalking areas reserved for families & beginners at the event.
