Remember drawing sprawling masterpieces on the sidewalk when you were a kid? Or maybe you’re keeping your chalk-art skills nice and honed through regular sessions with your own gaggle of youngsters.
Well, either way we invite you to come enjoy some full-bore Florida sunshine with us this October at Hotel Cabana, and take in while you do the one-of-a-kind Clearwater Beach Chalk Art Festival. This year’s celebration, the sixth annual, is a long-weekend affair falling October 20, 21, and 22, so now’s the time to lock down your postcard-perfect accommodations at our historic restored hotel!
Pavement as Canvas
Presented by the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce in collaboration many local businesses, the Chalk Art Festival brings better than 40 artists to South Clearwater Beach, the sidewalks of which will come alive with vivacious colors and all manner of patterns, symbols, and figures. The chalk-wielding maestros unleash their imaginations all along the beachwalk, and you can see the creative process from start to finish as it plays out over the festival’s three fabulously fun days.
You’ll get to do more than simply admire the chalk-tastic handiwork: Cast your vote for your favorite, and then find out who claims the “People’s Choice Award” on Sunday the 22nd! Check out the full list of participatping Clearwater Beach Chalk Art Festival artists right here.
Other Attractions at the Clearwater Beach Chalk Art Festival
Obviously the marvelously decorated concrete canvases are the heart of the Clearwater Beach Chalk Art Festival, but they’re not the full story. You’ll also get to enjoy live music, a wide array of arts-and-crafts vendors, and many kid-friendly games and activities during the proceedings.
