Chalk Art Competition

  • Riverside Park 300 Ellis Porter Drive Jefferson City, MO, 65101 United States (map)

Capital Street Art will be held on Saturday, September 8th at Riverside Park. Watch the sidewalks come alive! If you have never participated in Street Art we encourage you to join in a day of music, creativity, and fun. Cash prizes will be awarded to winners. Capital Arts Chalk Art Fair wouldn't be possible without our amazing sponsors: Missouri Arts Council and Jefferson City Parks & Recreation!

Sign Up Today! Registration is limited.
Drawing is done directly on the sidewalks – just like graffiti. You may begin working at any time after 12:30 pm. A registration table will be set up near the Amphitheatre for chalk pick-up and you will be directed as to where to begin your Street Art. You will have an assigned workspace to chalk. Winners will be announced and prizes awarded in the following weeks. Let your imagination run wild. Reproduce a renaissance painting, a family photograph, a still-life, a cartoon, or portrait – whatever you want.
