Presented by the 500 Block Association of Main Street
ChalkFest 2013 August 3rd & 4th
Welcome to the official webpage for ChalkFest Buffalo! The second year of what the 500 Block Association of Main Street hopes to continue to be an annual event in Downtown Buffalo, NY, is now under our belt. Next year plans to be just as fun and chalk-filled as this past year, but we will be bringing in a few new and exciting additions. Stay tuned!
With so many amazing things to do in Buffalo, the 500 Block Association felt their little niche needed to get on the summer calendars and what better way than through art, games, music, and food. An entire city block will be transformed into a colorful playground for two days, with more sidewalk chalk than anyone could dream of. Kids of all ages will have the chance to participate and leave their mark, albeit temporarily, in the city creating whatever their imagination can come up with, while drawing, learning and watching over the shoulders of Michael Macaulay and other local artists!
Encouraging the revitalization of Buffalo’s Main Streets is really what ChalkFest and the 500 Block Association is all about, and what better way than to get a bunch of kids, and those young at heart, and artists, both amateur and professional, together outdoors enjoying and decorating our downtown.
Artists of ALL ages can reserve a square (approximate size 5' x 5') for their chalk drawing. All reserved squares are eligible for judging. Prizes awarded to top winners! Please use our "Contact Us" or "Registration" tab to reserve your square. Or if you choose, there will be plenty of "Free Draw" space available, either way, the chalks on us!
Stay tuned to this site, and our Facebook page (ChalkFest Buffalo), for more updates about the 2014 year’s event!
ChalkFest 2013 is now over! Thank you Buffalo for making this year fantastic! We hope all the participated had an overwhelming experience and we hope to see you in 2014 for ChalkFest Buffalo!
