Chalkfest Buffalo 2016

Chalkfest Buffalo 2016!


Saturday & Sunday, August 6th & 7th (Noon-6pm Both Days!)   Located along the 500 Block of Main Street (between Chippewa & Mohawk)

ChalkFest Buffalo! is a free annual event in the heart of Downtown Buffalo, hosted by the 500 Block of Main Street Association. With so many amazing things to do in Buffalo, the 500 Block Association felt their little niche needed to get on the summer calendars and what better way than through art, games, music, and food. An entire city block is transformed into a colorful playground for two days, with more sidewalk chalk than anyone could dream of.        Kids of all ages will have the chance to participate and leave their mark, albeit temporarily, in the city creating whatever their imagination can come up with, while drawing, learning and watching over the shoulders of local and world renown artists!
