Sidewalk Chalk Festival

Come downtown on July 14th and make Lewisburg even more beautiful with your sidewalk chalk drawing skills (at least until it rains again)! Registration for the Festival begins at 5:00 in front of Brushstrokes.

This year’s featured Sidewalk Chalk Artist is Anna Kell, who will be working her artistic stylings in front of the Post Office.

Other exciting happenings are: Amy Downs will be transforming faces with facepaint under the post office apple tree; Brent Kessler will be strolling the streets, wowing us with his magic again; and to help keep everyone cool, ICE CREAM from the Lewisburg Freez (look for them near the Campus Theatre)!

Prizes will be awarded at 8:00 pm in front of Brushstrokes.

There will also be a Peoples’ Choice prize again this year!
Participants and visitors can place their choice for this prize in bags in specific stores downtown starting Friday night until 12:00 noon on Saturday, July 15. The artist of the drawing with the most votes wins the Peoples Choice Award.

Prizes will be posted in Brushstrokes, Faustina’s, the kiosk downtown, on our Facebook page, and our website.

The rain date for the Festival is July 21st, with People’s Choice voting ending on July 22nd.
