This festival will feature 30 musical acts, sidewalk chalk art, arts and crafts, vendors and plenty of food trucks. Chalk It Up is a nonprofit organization created to benefit children’s arts education and art activities. Its funds are raised through an annual chalk art festival that has been held each Labor Day Weekend since 1991. This year the festivities will be held at Freemont Park located on 16th and Q St.
As for advertisements, a number of squares on the perimeter of the park are sponsored by local businesses and organizations. Artists volunteer to create chalk drawings for their sponsors. The basic sponsorship fee is $150 for a single sidewalk square, $250 for a double square. Higher levels of sponsorship with great promotional benefits are available.
