About Chalk the Walk
The seventh annual 1000 Islands International Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival was held May 23, 2015. It was a fun-filled family event showcasing art for all ages. Many types of art were on display, including sidewalk chalk art, paintings, drawings, and fine art. Visitors made their own art, enjoyed a good old-fashioned BBQ, and had their faces painted. There were special activities just for children.
Please take a minute to read Lorraine Payette's excellent blog post about the 2014 event.
Since 2010 the Festival has featured a special guest: acclaimed author and illustrator Wallace Edwards joined us. As well, the festival has previously teamed with the Canadian Wildlife Federation to celebrate biodiversity; a press release announcing the partnership is available [PDF], as is the CWF's “Biodiversity” poster [PDF].
