Chalk it Up!

Check back for the 2018 date and event schedule for this popular event! 

2018 marks the third year for this colorful event. Watch as the roads and walks along Main Street fill up with bright chalk drawings created by local artistic talent. Artists arrive at 10am and begin creating their masterpieces. Enjoy some family and kid-friendly interactive opportunities, too as you watch the streets transform. You can also buy $1 votes to elect your favorite work of art.

Artists will put the finishing touches on by 3PM and the street will be closed until 6PM. Stroll this "middle-of-the-road" gallery of expression as you come downtown to shop and dine for the evening.   

Thank you to the many business sponsors who come together to sponsor this enjoyable afternoon and great addition to your night out..  

Want to "Chalk it Up" with us in 2018? We welcome businesses, individuals and families to sponsor squares as well as artists to donate time and talent. Contact Main Street Vermilion at 440.963.0772 for more information.
