The Denver Chalk Art Festival is an annual two-day street painting festival that takes place on Larimer Square in Denver, the United States. More than 200 artists comprising of both professionals and amateur spend hours on their hands and knees that weekend turning the streets of Larimer Square, up to four blocks down, into a museum of chalk art. Armed with only pastel chalks of a variety of colors, the artists create original, often three-dimensional works of art as well major masterpieces in their own style, as spectators watch in admiration. The event is a big draw among locals as it provides a rare opportunity to interact with the artists as they work. Visitors also enjoy live music as food and beverages are passed around.
Denver Chalk Art Festival is produced by the Larimer Arts Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting arts awareness and education in Denver.
