Chalk Walk at the Fair

September 8 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


From Market Square all the way to the Tennessee Valley Fair, the Dogwood Arts Chalk Walk is making another appearance this fall with a day-long street painting festival celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Fair!

Chalk Walk will transform the sidewalks at Patriot Circle (near the Bandstand) into brilliant canvases for the region’s most talented professional and youth artists. The event will take place on Sunday, September 8th from 12PM-4PM (the Fair is open 12PM-12AM) with an awards ceremony immediately following.

And don’t miss the First Tennessee Fun Zone! Where children of all ages can pick up chalk and create their very own sidewalk masterpieces.

Want to participate? Space is very limited, so click here to apply today: https://www.dogwoodarts.com/chalk-walk-tennessee-valley-fair/

We will accept applications on a rolling basis until all spots are filled. If you are not selected, we hope you will apply to Chalk Walk on Market Square this spring (Application opens September 17. Mark your calendar.)

A special award will be presented to the artist that best incorporates a “fair” theme into their work (ie. cotton candy, ferris wheel, bandstand).
