Award winning Main Street Bartow, Inc., the 3rdoldest Main Street in the State of Florida, is happy to announce our returning cultural arts event.
Returning for a 2nd year, Bartow’s “Chalk Walk”, is Polk County’s only professional Chalk Art event, here in our Capital City, in Ft. Blount Park.
We are looking forward to extending Bartow’s hometown hospitality to 30 artists this year from near and far, rolling out our chalk painting sidewalks as the canvas for artistic expressions that will come alive with color, energy, vibrancy and a unique art form that continues in popularity for artists and audiences alike, captivating art lovers and drawing crowds to cities that feature “street painting festivals.”
We look forward to not only bringing these cool artists to share their art form, but we will have music, food trucks, craft arts for the kiddos, trendy vendors and much more.
We are thrilled to bring this arts and cultural, 2 day community event, and exciting art form to Bartow.
