Ready, Set, Draw!


All are welcome to join in and decorate the streets of Berkeley at this year’s Chocolate & Chalk Art Festival, where the theme is “Art Sparks Joy.” Artists may work alone or in groups to create chalk art on the sidewalks along Shattuck Avenue and Cedar Street in North Berkeley.

The first 25 to register will receive a free box of chalk, and others can purchase chalk for $10 cash at the event. The street festival and chocolate tastings won’t be happening this year, but local businesses will offer special chocolate treats and gift items for sale. A contest for the best drawing will award cash prizes of $150, $100, and $50 to the top three winners.  Ten runners-up get a $25 gift certificate from Books, Inc.
