LAS VEGAS (Sept. 21, 2022) – Skye Canyon will celebrate art, autumn, and inspiration during its sixth annual juried chalk art competition, Chalktober Fest, a festival welcoming the fall season featuring a chalk art contest, art fair, games and inflatables, and pumpkin patch, set for Saturday, October 22, 2022, at Skye Canyon Park (10111 W. Skye Canyon Park Dr.) from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. The family-friendly event is free and open to the public.
This year’s chalk art contest theme is “Spread Love – Land, Sea, and Skye” and nearly 35 artists of all skill levels will vie for top honors and cash prizes as they imaginatively interpret this hopeful theme and display the power of uplifting artistic creativity. Other Chalktober Fest offerings include a Vendor Village featuring more than 30 vendors and artists, a pumpkin patch, a free canvas painting class, inflatable games, a rock wall, and an air jumper as well as a variety of food and drinks from popular food trucks Alpha Dawg, Greek Delights, Horsetrailer Hideout and Flat Tops.
The juried chalk art competition includes three categories, student (ages 12-18), amateur (18+), and professional. Cash prizes awarded in each category are $300 for first place, $200 for second place, and $100 for third place. Additionally, there are $100 cash prizes for one winner in two more categories: Best 3D piece, and Best Use of Color. As in previous years, attendees can vote on the People’s Choice earning the winner a $100 cash award.
As part of Skye Canyon’s ongoing community support program Skye Serves, Chalktober Fest proceeds will benefit local non-profit Project 150 whose mission to provide support and services to homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students so they can remain in school, graduate, and build bright futures.
