Chalk the Walk

June 15 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

10th-20th Streets On the Boardwalk

Chalk the Walk takes over the Virginia Beach Boardwalk from 10:00am-5:00pm, as artists and “wanna-be artists” gather to turn the boardwalk into an impromptu canvas of color!

2024 Theme: Flights of Fantasy

All participants must register by 12:30pm to qualify for the competition. All drawings must be completed by 3:30pm to be eligible for prizes. Registration is free, and all participants should bring their own chalk.

At Chalk the Walk, participants draw four by four-foot chalk drawings for three blocks along the boardwalk.

Competitors will complete chalk drawings to be evaluated by a panel of judges. Judges will score the drawings according to criteria such as composition, use of color, adherence to theme, and creativity. There will be three competitive divisions: Amateur, Professional, and Youth. The Youth division will be for ages 12-16.

Trophies and cash prizes will be awarded for each division.

Winners will be announced at 4:45pm on the boardwalk at 17th Street.
