The Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce proudly presents the Clearwater Beach Chalk Art Festival! This fun and FREE event has been made possible through the collaboration of the Beach Chamber’s Chalk Art Festival Committee & community minded art lovers alike. For three days, over 40 talented chalk artists will transform the sidewalks of BeachWalk on South Clearwater Beach into spectacular larger-than-life-canvases, allowing the public to get a rare glimpse into the way art is produced in all stages of progress. Each year, the public has the opportunity to choose their favorite piece of artwork by voting for the “People’s Choice Award,” which is announced by Twelve Noon on the third and last day of the event.
The 2017 People’s Choice Award Winner
Now in its seventh year, the Clearwater Beach Chalk Art Festival’s following continues to grow by offering top local and regional artists, student artists, and artist groups to capture your attention by creating sidewalk art using chalk that you will talk about for months to come! To make this event possible, the Beach Chamber has teamed up with several local businesses as event sponsors, including the City of Clearwater, who promote, celebrate, and engage the community in this artful event! Event Sponsors also make it possible to house non-local artists and to raise the prize money for the winner of each years “People’s Choice Award.” This family friendly festival also includes a kid’s zone, arts and crafts vendors, live music, and a one-of-a-kind open air gallery on one of America’s Best Beaches!
