Round Rock, Texas (PRWEB) August 22, 2014
The Round Rock Chalk Walk Arts Festival is Round Rock’s area largest and most prestigious festival for arts and cultural events drawing over 20,000 people annually to Round Rock during the first weekend in October. Chalk Walk and Arts Festival has thousands in attendance with numerous vendors, sponsors, and artists, including chalk artists, musicians vocal groups, theatrical performances, food and drinks, and children’s performances.
The Round Rock Chalk Walk is a free festival. The goal is to provide a celebration of the arts and be crowned by its peers as one of the best festivals in the area. Chalk is the theme. Chalk Walk is the Round Rock Art’s version of an Italian Street painting festival. Artists are free to create, with chalk pastels, a picture 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. The fact that the paintings disappear at the end of the fest makes their beauty even more appealing.
This year’s event will be October 3 – 4, 2014, and will be located in its new site, Centennial Plaza area and Brown Street!
