2018 Chalktober Fest

October 20, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Join us for a day of food, libations, and fun as we celebrate our local art community at Chalktober Fest. This free and family-friendly event will feature our second annual juried chalk art competition and art fair, local food trucks, live music, a beer and wine station and a kid-friendly art and fun zone.

Chalk artists will work along the concrete path at Skye Canyon Park to create a piece that embodies the competition theme, Spirit of Las Vegas. At 4 p.m. judges Kristi Overgaard of Switch, Nikki Berti of Goodie Two Shoes Foundation, and local curator and arts advocate Paco Alvarez will select the top three entries in each of the three categories, high school, amateur and professional. Attendees can vote on their favorite entry for the People’s Choice Award; the entry with the most votes will win the $500 cash prize. Winners will be announced at 5:15 p.m.

During Chalktober Fest, chalk artist Jay Schwartz will create a large-scale chalk art piece. Stop by his work area during the event to watch his process as his creation comes to life.

As the competitors work on their masterpieces, attendees can browse through the selections by local artists in our art fair. There will also be a freestyle chalk art area where attendees can create artwork of their own. In our Kids Art Area, children can create an art project to take home. There will also be an inflatable slide with two bounce houses.

Oh my gourd! Chalktober Fest will also feature a pumpkin patch where kids can pick their own pumpkin to take home (or decorate in the Kids Art Area). There is a $2 suggested donation per pumpkin with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Create A Change. One pumpkin per child; pumpkins are available while supplies last. Our pumpkin patch will also have fall-themed photo area. Kids are welcome to wear a Halloween costume to the event.

Attendees 21+ can enjoy wine and craft beer selections. Proceeds from the beer and wine sales will also benefit Create a Change Now. Stripchezze Food Truck, 50 Shades of Green, and Churros 101 will serve up delicious eats that you can enjoy on the field.
