The 4th Annual Round Rock Chalk Walk will be held in downtown Round Rock on October 4 and 5.
Chalk Art - The Chalk Walk is the Round Rock Arts Council’s version of an Italian Street painting Festival. Artists create, with chalk pastels, works of art on the concrete. Drawings are created in full view of the public, who are encouraged to interact with the artists as they use their amazing talents to create beautiful “murals” before their audience’s eyes.
Friday Night Highlights – New for this year is the Friday night party “Blues, Brews and BBQ” – featuring delicious barbeque and music by the the Belltower Trio.
The Biscuit Brothers headline Saturday’s activities. Chalk artists, local musicians, visual artists, crafters, food vendors, jugglers, trick dogs, mini horses, street performers and separate activity areas for adults and children are key features of this event. Confirmed musical acts include the seventeen piece Monster Big Band, Inside Out Steel Band, Biltmore Blues, Flight 19, Paul Koudouris and One Resistance. The event is free.
Saturday Art Auction - Selected artists, school art programs & teachers, individuals and businesses create a work of art to be auctioned off for art program funding. Each item is judged and has a chance to win cash awards. Bidding starts at 6 p.m. on Saturday at the Plaza main stage.
