2024 Sidewalk Chalkathon
December 2 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 pm
Join us for this innovative, family-friendly fundraising event that will benefit the Mobile Medical Museum and our co-host, the Ambitiously Him and Her King Foundation. Contestants of all ages are invited to compete for prizes awarded to the best sidewalk chalk drawings. Also featured will be music, activity tables and food trucks. All proceeds from the event will help to fund the charitable work of the host organizations.
Up to thirty contestants will be able to compete, grouped into age categories and judged by a panel of local artists. Each contestant will receive one admission ticket and a complimentary supply of chalk in 48 available colors, Non-competitive, “just for fun” chalk packets are also available at a discount. There will be spaces marked out for drawing on the pavement underneath the pavilions at Tricentennial Park. If weather permits, contestants may also use other nearby paved areas. Contestants will have up to one hour to complete their drawings. Based on the scoring of the judges’ panel, prizes will be awarded in each age category.
Sponsored by Ashland Gallery, Innova Arts, and Sophiella Gallery. Special thanks to Damian Marks, Sr., and Sherry Marks for donating the chalk for this event.
