Tempe’s Chalk Art Festival at Tempe Marketplace

Remember when you were little and used to create magnificent works of art with chalk on your front driveway? I do! I could spend hours with my neighbor friends creating all sorts of designs. Ready to walk down memory lane?

Revisit those fun memories on Saturday, April 12th at the Chalk Art Festival at Tempe Marketplace! Local artists will be creating original works of art right on the sidewalks inside The District area. Six unique chalk murals will be created throughout the day. Each design will be 8 x 6 feet, so they’ll be easy to spot and enjoy from every direction.

Feel like bringing out your inner artist? Head over to the community mural area to add your own touch. Chalk will be provided and art instructors on hand to assist children and participants. There will also be a designated KidZone area with fun activities for the kiddos to participate in.

I’m excited to walk around the festival and mix in some shopping too. And why not add in a yummy meal as well! I’m always in the mood for California Pizza Kitchen, Smash Burger or Thirsty Lion Pub & Grill.

Don’t miss this fun event in Tempe on April 12 at Tempe Marketplace – I’ll see you there!
