Raised by 11 people in 10 months
We are a group of artists and event planners who proposed an idea to create a chalk art/street painting festival. We are working in collaboration with Visions of the Wild . We will have our event take place in downtown Vallejo.

Chalk artists/street painters, from master artists to youth and families, will transform the pavement into a collection of vibrant, colorful, large scale images. These designs will include images reflective of Visions of the Wild - Changing Landscapes theme.

Why Chalk, Why on Pavement?

Get the public excited!

Public engagement is a key component of chalk art festivals. The community can come out and see art being made and artists can demonstrate their process from beginning to end. This, contrast to viewing a finished product in a studio. Artists benefit from these festivals by being provided space to showcase their work to the public.

Since the Chalk Art Festival Vallejo will be in its first year. Professionals and amateurs of all ages, teams of artists from schools and youth organizations are encouraged to participate. Chalk and other supplies will be provided complimentary to participants.

The festival will be supported through in-kind donations, sponsorship from local and regional businesses. A portion of the festival proceeds will go to support young artists within the community.

It is our intent to showcase local, regional, and national artistic talent. Our focus is to support youth art education and bringing culture, community and creativity to our beautiful downtown.
