The Byron Community Wellness Foundation is proud to sponsor The 8th annual West Michigan Chalk Art Festival in Byron Center, Michigan. This is an event you won't want to miss!
The West Michigan Chalk Art Festival brings explosions of color, vitality, and a sense of community to West Michigan. Artists are invited to display their creativity and imagination and demonstrate the many varieties of chalk art. We invite children, adults, families, and businesses to create their own art using chalk.
Bring the whole family, your friends, and neighbors. You can participate as an artist or just walk, view, and experience the art at your feet. Come out for some fun in the sun, face painting for the kids, and many other activities. And of course, an opportunity to let loose and create!
Artist check-in starts Friday, June 16th at 9 am. Artists are welcome to begin their pieces as soon as they register. During registration, artists will have a team member assist them with choosing a location that fits within Tanger's guidelines.
Saturday June 17, brings the Kids Chalk Event 11-3 where they will have an oppourtunity to create their own masterpieces, free of charge! Have your kids stop by and get their faces painted while you're there. No registration is required for the Kids Chalk Event.
Watch as artists continue working on their pieces which must be finished by 3pm for judging to begin. It usually takes about 2 hours for judging (depending on the number of pieces, it could take longer) and winners will be announced at approximately 5pm.
