The Idaho Statesman is proud to announce our 6th annual Chalk Art Festival, in conjunction with the City of Boise's Fireworks Celebration.


Idaho Statesman Chalk Art Festival is a celebration of art. We highlight featured local artists who donate their time to create wonderful works of art at our festival. We invite anyone who would like to express their artistic talent with chalk to participate.  We provide Chalk Land, a separate and free area for children 11 and younger who want to draw with chalk and create their own sidewalk chalk art. 

The public is invited to watch the chalk artists create their designs.  Public voting for favorite artists will is ongoing throughout the festival.


The 6th Annual Idaho Statesman Chalk Art Festival takes place on Saturday, July 4th. Participants will be creating their sidewalk chalk art from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Judging takes place after 4 p.m., followed by an announcement of the award winners.



The Festival takes place on the west side of Ann Morrison Park, near Americana Boulevard entrance to the park. Throughout the day, spectators are encouraged to drop voting tokens at their favorite chalk art drawings culminating in a People's Choice Award.




Parking will be available to registered chalk artists.
