About the Event

This is the first year for the Clarksville Chalk Walk Festival, which was designed to encourage and promote the arts in our community.  The idea for the event came from the partnership between the Clarksville Parks & Recreation Department, and Arts Bridge, Inc. of SE Indiana. Arts Bridge is a nonprofit arts service organization that strengthens the arts in SE Indiana by providing resources to artists, arts providers and communities.

Arts Groups

Part of the Chalk Walk is encouraging and supporting the arts in our community.  We are inviting local non-profit arts groups to set up FREE booths to distribute information about their organizations.  We will welcome school groups, local arts clubs, and others. There is no fee to set up a booth.


The Chalk Art Contest

Area residents will spend hours turning the Clarksville Town Hall parking lot into an outdoor art exhibit, in hopes of winning bragging rights and prizes. If you are not a professional artist, don't worry!  Competitors will be divided into several categories including, Professional Artists, Amateur Adults, Children, and even a family category for those wishing to work together!  Each registered artist will be assigned a parking space to use as their canvas.  Chalk will be provided for everyone except for those in the Professional Adult category! Prizes will be awarded to the winners in each category.  The best part is, the fee to register is only $5.00! Artists can check-in and begin working at 10:00AM.  Judging will begin at 1:00PM.
