Seventh Annual Juried Chalk Art Competition – Saturday, October 14, 2023
Calling all artists and artisanal crafts vendors, registration is now open for the highly anticipated seventh annual juried chalk art competition, Chalktoberfest. Embracing the spirit of the fall season, this family festival will feature a chalk art contest, art fair, pumpkin patch, and more. Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 14, 2023, as the festivities unfold at Skye Canyon Park (10111 W. Skye Canyon Park Dr.) from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This year’s chalk art contest theme is “Colors of the Desert Skye.” Artists of all skill levels are invited to unleash their creativity and imaginatively interpret this inspiring theme, showcasing the boundless power of artistic expression as they compete for top honors and enticing cash prizes.
The juried competition encompasses three categories: student (ages 12-18), amateur (18+), and professional. Cash prizes await the winners in each category, with $300 for first place, $200 for second place, and $100 for third place. Additionally, we have two exciting special awards, with $100 cash prizes for the Best 3D piece and the Best Use of Color. As in previous years, attendees will have the chance to cast their votes for the People’s Choice winner, who will receive a $100 cash award. Registration is now open, and we welcome the first 50 artists to secure their spots. Interested artists can register to participate at https://skyecanyon.com/call-to-artists/.
In addition to the chalk art extravaganza, Skye Canyon invites up to thirty-two talented artisans to join the Vendor Village, showcasing and selling their unique creations. A 10′ x 10′ booth is available for a modest fee of $100, which will be directly donated to Skye Serves, our community’s philanthropic outreach program. Local artisans with diverse creative mediums are encouraged to apply for a booth at https://skyecanyon.com/vendor-registration/.
