Art Block Party & Chalk Art Festival

Art Block Party & Chalk Art Festival

Saturday, October 22

Chalk Art Festival: 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Art Block Party: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
The theme for this year's Chalk Art Festival is "Art Cosmos!" Join the Roswell Museum and Art Center for the annual festival and block party: a fun community event and a celebration of the creativity possible with chalk art. 

Sign up - as an individual or a group - for a sidewalk square to express your vision of "Art Cosmos." At the all-day Art Block Party, there will be live entertainment, including Roswell Jazz Festival's School of Jazz in the morning and an afternoon two-hour performance on the outdoor stage. 

You'll also find food trucks, community booths and local art vendors selling crafts.
The celebration will feature entertainment and activities for children and adults: spin art, ceramics, Crazy Hair Salon, face painting, the Art Car, making art pins, programming in the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium and much more. 

RMAC is pleased to thank our event sponsors:

Peppers Grill and Bar, Stellar Coffee Co., Blick Art Materials, Roswell Livestock & Farm Supply, Walmart, Roswell Builder's Do It Center, RMAC Foundation
