Learn more about Chalk Walk.
The Chalk Walk remains one of the fan favorites among our visitors in April! The street painting festival, whose origination as a featured event of Dogwood Arts, drew inspiration from a 16th century Italian happening, turns Knoxville’s downtown sidewalks into a seemingly infinite canvas for the region’s most talented professional and student artists. Dogwood Arts brings this event to Knoxville once again to continue to educate visitors and artists, alike, of this lost art in hopes of keeping it alive for future generations.
Chalk Walk is our largest-community driven event, and is open to the public where novice and professional artists alike can apply for a space on historic Market Square to ‘chalk.’ Over 25,000 people attend this one-day event, and the winning artists are presented a ribbons and cash awards.
