Chocolate & Chalk Art Festival

The sidewalks along Shattuck and Cedar streets in North Berkeley are the focus of artists young and old, professional and greenhorn during the 22nd CHOCOLATE & CHALK ART FESTIVAL on Saturday, June 19, 10 AM-4 PM. With health and safety in mind, there won’t be a street festival this year but there will be lots of joy.

Register in person on Saturday, June 19 at the event booth at Shattuck & Cedar where a box of colorful artist’s chalk is available for $10.

MAKE ART! With no fees to artists, areas of sidewalk are assigned for you to create your own fanciful chalk drawings. The theme for this year is “Art Sparks Joy.” Families or groups may work together, artists may work alone, but everyone comes away with a sense of pride in their work for all to see. First 25 to pre-register get a free box of chalk.

A CHALK ART CONTEST for the best drawing will be judged after 4 PM. The top three winners will receive cash prizes ($150/$100/$50). Ten runners up get a $25 gift certificate from Books, Inc. Winners will be notified by Wednesday after the event. See prior winners at the chalk art gallery.

EAT CHOCOLATE! This year, due to COVID, no formal tasting menu or tickets will be produced. Local businesses will be offering special chocolate treats and gift items for sale. Follow the North Shattuck Assn. @NOSHABerkeley for the list.
This is a family-friendly, free event produced by Another Bullwinkel Show and sponsored by the North Shattuck Association, City of Berkeley Civic Arts, and Books Inc. For a good time, take BART to Downtown Berkeley and stroll north six blocks.

Venue: North Shattuck Ave., 1601 Shattuck Ave. @ Cedar St., Berkeley

Free Entry, Box of Chalk is $10.

Presented by North Shattuck Association.
