Chalk Art Festival: 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Art Block Party: 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM The theme for this year's Chalk Art Festival is "Art Cosmos!" Join the Roswell Museum and Art Center for the annual festival and block party: a fun community event and a celebration of the creativity possible with chalk art.
Sign up - as an individual or a group - for a sidewalk square to express your vision of "Art Cosmos." At the all-day Art Block Party, there will be live entertainment, including Roswell Jazz Festival's School of Jazz in the morning and an afternoon two-hour performance on the outdoor stage.
You'll also find food trucks, community booths and local art vendors selling crafts.
The celebration will feature entertainment and activities for children and adults: spin art, ceramics, Crazy Hair Salon, face painting, the Art Car, making art pins, programming in the Robert H. Goddard Planetarium and much more.
