The Dansville Chalk Walk & Arts Fest
Chalk Walk & Arts Fest has found a new home this year with Dansville ArtWorks Inc., a local arts organization dedicated to promoting all art forms in our area after many years of support from The Dansville Area Chamber of Commerce.
Chalk Walk & Arts Fest is scheduled for Saturday, August 5th this year, with a grant from Livingston Arts (our county’s official arts council) and marketing support from Noyes Health, with the assistance of the Foundation for Dansville Education, Inc., Beth Doty Designs and the Village of Dansville. Genesee Community College, Dansville Public Library and the Town of North Dansville are also assisting in this growing community arts event that includes sidewalk chalk art, live music by Steel Alchemy Community Steel Band, and a juried arts and crafts show and sale in the historic downtown district. Dansville Mini Storage is also providing support for a second year as our Art Supply Sponsor.
In 2016, more than 200 individuals of all ages participated in Chalk Walk & Arts Fest! Now in its fourth year, community members are asked to “save the date” and plan to participate in the fun as community chalk artists and appreciators of all of the artwork. Business owners are invited to host our community chalk artists for this rain or shine event.
Calls for Artists (juried chalk artists and exhibitors / vendors for the arts and crafts sale) have been announced; applications , details and forms can be found at the Dansville ArtWorks website or you can email your request. Information for community chalk artists can also be found on the Dansville ArtWorks website.
Plan to join the fun on Saturday, August 5th, 10 am - 4 pm in historic downtown Dansville. Chalk Walk & Arts Fest is open to the public and free. Follow the event on Facebook: Dansville Chalk Walk to stay up to date on all the exciting plans!
