Chalk Art Festival: Four Directions Fest July 1, 2017

Downtown Williams Lake is hosting our first ever Chalk Arts Festival July 1st 2017.  We are inviting professional chalk artists, amateur arts enthusiasts and everyone in between to participate.  A quick Google image search of “Chalk Art Festival” will bring up images to inspire the artists in all of us!
The Chalk Arts Festival is part of a huge 9-hour, 4-blocks-closed-to-vehicle-traffic festival in the downtown core.  We have so many things planned!  Outdoor dining, beer garden, mural making, performance stages, buskers, Lehal tournament, square dancing, Makers Market, amazing kids’ zone, multicultural tents…  come create something wonderful out of chalk!
