Watch artists create giant works of art on the sidewalks of downtown on Saturday, August 26 from 10-4:30 as part of the YorkFest Arts Festival! Creative York will be partnering with YorkFest to present Chalk Walk 2017. The chalk murals will begin at the 100 block of West Market Street and Pershing Ave, and will extend east on Market.

Chalk Walk is an exciting event designed to celebrate the creativity of artists and promote the importance of public art. The sidewalks of downtown York become an artist’s canvas and a place for audiences to watch works of art being created right before their eyes. Money raised from the event will be used to benefit youth art programs.
