    Labor Day Weekend – Aug 31 – Sept 2, 2019 Fremont Park 16th & Q Streets ANNUAL FESTIVAL 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 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. Vendors And Food The Chalk It Up! festival features over 75 arts and craft booths and nearly two dozen food vendors. Experience an amazing array of locally created art, custom jewelry, and clothing. And if you get hungry, Chalk It Up has multiple food trucks and smaller food vendors serving up a wide variety of tasty and healthy food options. The Chalk It Up Beer Garden features many regionally brewed favorites including Track 7, Two Rivers, and Lagunitas beers and ciders. Performers Each day of the Chalk It Up! festival also features a variety of musical performers who donate their time to entertain the public and set a lively soundtrack to the festivities. Festival Activities 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. APPLY FOR A YOUTH ART GRANT Chalk It Up is a 501(c)3 non-profit established in 1991. Chalk It Up promotes and supports Youth Arts by offering small grants to K-12 classrooms, and youth arts projects throughout the Sacramento region. We do this in large part with our annual Chalk It Up! Festival which encourages artistic expression of all kinds through a three day celebration of chalk art, live music, and regional food and craft vendors. Join us for our 29th annual Chalk It Up! Festival, Aug 31 – Sept 2, 2019.
