In July 2019, the inaugural Chalk Howard Street in Rogers Park became Chicago’s first and only major chalk art festival! Back and better than ever for its 3rd year this August, this fest truly has something for everyone!
Presented by the Rogers Park Business Alliance, Chalk Howard Street Fest features world-renowned 3D and 2D chalk artists, food by local purveyors, opportunities for amateur artists and family-friendly music and entertainment. Get there early to watch incredible art be created in front of your eyes, or join the fun and chalk your own masterpiece! Later in the afternoon you will even be able to jump into the art and feel the magic come to life.
Local bands will be playing live music all afternoon and evening, the air will be filled with delicious food from local restaurants, and a kids chalk area will keep the kids entertained while you shop at vendor booths from nearby stores. This one of a kind experience is not one to be missed!
