The Pacific NW Chalk Fest returns to the Puget Sound region for a third year this August, featuring 18 internationally, nationally and regionally renowned chalk artists. The showcase will transform 164th Avenue NE and 74th Street of Redmond Town Center in Redmond, Washington into pastel masterpieces August 16-18.
REDMOND TOWN CENTER SIDEWALK SALE
As you peruse street murals, enjoy the annual Redmond Town Center merchant Sidewalk Sale, artful sips and bites from RTC merchants, kids activities, and live music all weekend! This is a great weekend to stock up on your favorite staples, including apparel, sporting goods, jewelry, cosmetics, home furnishings, accessories, and back-to-school gear.
With origins in the streets of Italy, chalk art has attracted and inspired master artists, amateur artists and spectators from around the world. Chalk art events have become major draws for tourists in Victoria, BC; San Jose and Pasadena, CA; Denver; Sarasota, FL; and Marietta, GA to name a few in North America.
In addition to the artists, the festival will offer a chalk garden for children ages 3-16 to create their own masterpieces and live music provided courtesy of Redmond Town Center.
