Gahhhh!!! It’s almost here, and this year’s event has us even more excited than normal. This will be the 3rd consecutive year we’ve shut down the brick avenue in front of our shop to create a day filled with street art and free family fun, and this time, we get to be the ones kicking off the ArtPrize enthusiasm! We supply the chalk while artists of every age do the rest, filling our street with their bright-colored creativity. There is so much freedom – you never know what you may encounter as you stroll, taking in the designs scattered everywhere you look at Chalk Flood.
We are thrilled to be welcoming some new partners this year to the event who will bring a new dynamic to the event through their products and purposeful causes. You will find fair trade jewelry and gifts made by rescued or at-risk women from Women at Risk International, an art cart from Freshly Squeezed, handmade soap from Fish Hill Soap Works, in addition to many other local shops and organizations!
So come and chalk up the city! Enjoy music, street vendors, food, a beer tent benefitting Rays of Hope International, street performers, and more! Over $1,000 in prizes will be awarded to top entries in adult and kid categories.
