The Chalk Walk Arts Festival is Round Rock’s largest festival for the arts, with beautiful sidewalk murals drawing in tens of thousands of people over the course of two days. Hundreds of artists will showcase their work, with fun activities for the whole family! The 2019 event will be held at Dell Diamond stadium, home of the Round Rock Express.
This large-scale festival is produced by our 501c3 nonprofit arts organization, and we could not launch Chalk Walk and Arts Festival each year without the support of our generous sponsors, volunteers, board members, and other members of the community.
The thousands in attendance – comprised of residents of and visitors to the area – come to downtown Round Rock to enjoy chalk artists creating artwork on the streets of the festival groups, musicians, vocal groups, theatrical performances, food and drinks, and children’s performances by local organizations and schools. Not only is it great fun, but Chalk Walk and Festival also has an economic impact of over $380,000 on our community!
Round Rock Arts’ goal is to provide a celebration of the arts accessible to all, so admission to Chalk Walk and Festival is free. Art is the theme and chalk is the medium. From start to finish, participating artists will create art in full view of the public, who are encouraged to interact with the artists as they use their amazing talents to create beautiful “murals.” That the paintings disappear at the end of the festival makes their beauty even more appealing. We have created new cash prize categories this year, including: Best of Show; Second Place; Third Place; Best Representation of Round Rock; Best Animal; Best Figure; Best Copy of a Famous Masterpiece; Best New Comer (first-time artist); and Most Creative.
The Round Rock Chalk Walk Arts Festival is Round Rock area’s largest and most prestigious festival, drawing over 40,000 people annually to this free event during the first weekend in October. Round Rock Chalk Walk Arts Festival features hundreds of artists, vendors, sponsors, local and regional musicians, theatrical performances, foods and drinks, and a children’s area with performances. Round Rock Chalk Walk Arts Festival is located at Dell Diamond in Round Rock, Texas, where artists and vendors exhibit, showcase and sell their work. Implemented by Round Rock Arts (www.roundrockarts.org) and now sponsored by the City of Round Rock Arts and Culture, Chalk Walk Arts Festival is a showcase for a large variety of fine art, fine crafts and other vendors and provides patrons with the opportunity to meet and talk with who created the work. Chalk artists creating street paintings, daily live entertainment with Friday and Saturday night concerts make for a perfect weekend at Dell Diamond!
