LAS VEGAS (Aug 3, 2022) – Calling all artists and artisanal crafts vendors, registration is now open for Skye Canyon’s sixth annual juried chalk art competition, Chalktoberfest, a festival welcoming the fall season fair featuring a chalk art contest, art fair, pumpkin patch, and children’s costume contest, set for Saturday, October 22, 2022, at Skye Canyon Park (10111 W. Skye Canyon Park Dr.) from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
This year’s chalk art contest theme is “Spread Love – Land, Sea, and Skye.” Artists of all skill levels are encouraged to imaginatively interpret this hopeful theme and display the power of uplifting artistic creativity as they vie for top honors and cash prizes.
The juried 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. Registration is free and limited to first 50 artists. Artists should plan to bring their own supplies and can register to participate at https://skyecanyon.com/call-to-artists/.
Skye Canyon is also offering up to thirty, 10’ x 10’ booths at the vendor village where local artisans in all sorts of creative mediums can showcase and sell their wares. The cost of a vendor booth is $100, which will be directly donated to Skye Serves, the community’s ongoing philanthropic outreach program.
