Zeeland’s Chalk Fest
August 11th marks Zeeland’s fourth Chalk Festival from 4pm to 8pm on the Woonerf (Elm Street between Cherry Street and Main Street).
The public is welcome to stroll the street to watch the artist actively working on their pieces from 1pm to 4pm. From 4pm to 8pm the event will include the finished products, an opportunity to speak with the artists, live music, food truck, outdoor games as well as the ability to vote for your favorite. The event will include entertainment for all ages!
Artists will be using chalk as their medium and the streets as their canvas. They will be creating pieces that are 6’ x 6’ large along the street. Event goers can vote for their favorite Friday night and watch social media for the winner to be announced on Saturday.
