Chalk It Up! to Sacramento

The 21st Annual Chalk It Up to Sacramento will be held over Labor Day Weekend - September 3-5, 2011- at Fremont Park in downtown Sacramento. Celebrate the talents of hundreds of local artists and musicians at Sacramento’s favorite family festival.

The three-day event raises money for grants to fund youth arts education programs in all disciplines in local schools and in the community. Chalk It Up! features more than 200 volunteer artists, sponsored by local businesses, creating chalk art masterpieces on the sidewalks surrounding the park.

Live music is featured all day long throughout the festival. This year’s acts will include Walking Spanish, exquisite Corps, Dog Party with special guest Kepi, and over two dozen top-notch local acts.

Hands-on art activities for children, led by professional artists and groups like the Sacramento Public Library, will be featured each day. There is truly something for everyone of any age to enjoy with a broad variety of community groups, craft booths, gourmet food trucks, and a wine and beer garden. Access to the park and the event is always FREE to the public.

Chalk It Up! to Sacramento is an all volunteer 501(c)(3) charitable organization engaging over 400 volunteers each year in support of the festival. Mark your calendar and bring your friends and family to enjoy a memorable weekend at Fremont Park in downtown Sacramento – all for FREE.
