Event Details

Summer is here, which means it’s almost time for CHALKFEST!

This year, ChalkFest takes place 12 – 7 p.m. Thursday, August 9 at The Red River Zoo, proudly sponsored by Gate City Bank.

ChalkFest is one of The Arts Partnership’s favorite annual programs because it’s a free event (including zoo admission) that invites people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to do one simple thing: draw with chalk. Want to draw a stick figure? Great! Want to draw your mom, grandpa or babysitter? Maybe your favorite animal? Wonderful! The beauty of chalk is that it’s universal, it’s relatable, and it’s fun.

In addition to free chalk, the day is full of energizing music, fun activities, engagement with local arts groups and more. We also hire local artists to beautify the entrance to the Red River Zoo and to inspire your creativity.

To get you in the spirit for ChalkFest, The Arts Partnership and Gate City Bank invite the community to observe public chalk drawings by local artists at various bank locations across Fargo-Moorhead this summer:
