Each Labor Day Weekend, we turn Fremont Park in downtown Sacramento into an explosion of chalk art masterpieces, live music, public art, and community engagement. Since 1991, the Chalk It Up! festival has been our biggest fundraiser to support Youth Art Projects, and has turned into a hugely popular regional event that brings over 60,000 people to Fremont Park over the three-day weekend.
The main attraction of the Chalk It Up! festival are the hundreds of sidewalk chalk paintings that are created over the course of the weekend. Supported by our generous Square Sponsors, and brought to life by our talented Volunteer Artists, these squares turn from gray concrete paths to beautiful expressions of artistic vision. These chalk masterpieces are started on the first day of the festival and the public is encouraged to watch their progress throughout the weekend.
As an organization dedicated to support Youth Arts in Sacramento, our Chalk It Up! Festival includes many of activities for families, children, and teens to enjoy. All of the interior sidewalks in Fremont Park are open to the public to add their own chalk masterpieces to the festivities by bringing their own chalk or supporting our efforts and purchasing chalk at our merchandise tent. We also offer a Create-a-Zone which includes games, crafts, and activities for all to enjoy
