Massive Maple Grove Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival Kicks Off in September
Let's face it, sidewalk chalk is awesome. There is a Minnesota Mom named Jessica who went viral during the pandemic for her beautiful sidewalk drawings. The art was so gorgeous that it's actually caught the attention of some of the people who voiced the animated characters she drew in Hollywood.
People loved looking at the drawings because sidewalk art is a beautiful talent that really catches your attention.
If you're a fan of beautiful sidewalk art, you're going to want to make sure you stop out to The Shoppes At Arbor Lakes in Maple Grove on Saturday, September 4.
From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Chalkfest-Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival will be taking over the area. Many talented artists from around the world will be on-hand making beautiful works of art in chalk.
And, the art will feature fun pop culture characters that your kids are familiar with and will love. Many of the drawings are 3D, so you will be able to have fun posing for pictures with the characters.
Event goers will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite piece of art too. The winner will receive the 'People's Choice Award'.
According to the official Facebook event page, it's 'one of the largest street art festivals in the Midwest."
The artists will start working on their masterpieces on Saturday. If you attend the event, you'll be able to watch the magic happen live. Then, they'll finish everything up on Sunday.
The best part is, this event is free to attend. You can find more information on the festival's website.
