We invite you to participate in our 2nd Annual Paint the Pavement—A Chalk Fest on Saturday, May 25 and Sunday, May 26, 2019 over Memorial Day weekend. Paint the Pavement—A Chalk Fest is an outdoor chalk art performance festival, in conjunction with the St. Charles Fine Art Show, a 100-artist juried show and free to the public event.

Paint the Pavement is open to all skill levels. You may choose a square for yourself, your organization or your local business and we will provide you with a box of 48 pastels. Please see https://www.downtownstcharles.org/dscp_events/paint-the-pavement/ for an application and chalk art tips!

Our shows are located along the banks of the scenic Fox River in the heart of vibrant downtown St. Charles. Located just 40 miles west of Chicago, St. Charles is a lively urban oasis that has long been a destination for the arts and unique festivals, as well as authentic dining experiences, lively entertainment, outdoor adventures and walkable shopping.

The St. Charles Fine Art Show historically attracts over 30,000 art supporters who come from all over Chicagoland and beyond for this award-winning show. We are happy to offer the unique element of Paint the Pavement chalk art, providing opportunities for professionals, students and emerging artists!

The St. Charles Fine Art Show and Paint the Pavement are presented by the Downtown St. Charles Partnership, a non-profit dedicated to the enhancement and economic viability of downtown St. Charles, Illinois.
