Register Now to Participate as an
Artist or Vendor for Chalk & Cheers

Celebrate the Arrival of Fall with Art, Food and Fun.

Skye Canyon’s 5th annual juried chalk art contest theme is “Skye’s the Limit” and artists’ work will interpret sources of happiness, illustrate ideas about creativity, vision, and the power of creativity. Artists are invited to participate in this unique event during Chalk & Cheers, a fall art festival on Saturday, September 25th, 2021 at Skye Canyon Park. There is no fee to enter but the contest is limited to 50 artists, and we recommend artists bring their own supplies. Chalk Artists can register as either a student artist, amateur artist or professional artist and can win cash prizes!

 

Skye Canyon is also offering up to thirty, 10’x10′ booths at the vendor village where local artisans in all sorts of creative mediums can showcase and sell their wares. In lieu of booth payment, participating vendors must donate a raffle item valued at $75-$100. Event attendees will be given a punch card and those who make a purchase from three different vendors will be automatically entered into the grand prize raffle.
