West Michigan Chalk Art Festival 2019

The Chalk Art Festival Draws Artists from all around

The Byron Community Wellness Foundation is proud to present the 10th West Michigan Chalk Art Festival. This is our premier event you won’t want to miss! Talented artists from all around come out to share their chalk creations with the community while competing for a Grand Prize of $1000.


This event, which is free for the community to view, will bring an explosion of color before your eyes, as artists create their masterpieces on the sidewalks of Tanger Outlets. This fun-filled weekend kicks off on Friday June 14th, when artists select their locations and begin working on their pieces. Artists may arrive anytime throughout the day as early as 8am until 8pm, and may work on their pieces throughout the day at their leisure.

Saturday June 15th, artists may still arrive and start their pieces if they choose, as we’ll have registration open from 8am-12 noon. Artists must finish their pieces by 3pm* for judging to begin. We will also have our People’s Choice Award booth open that day for voting from 11am-3pm. This is where the public gets to vote for their favorite chalk piece, so stop by and cast your vote (there’s no age limitation on voting, so kids get to choose too)!


People’s Choice Award: $500
