Sidewalk chalk is a huge staple at our house during the warm months. It’s on the shopping list right up there with toilet paper, bread and milk. Our sidewalk and driveway are welcoming seas of scribbles, scrawls and mostly indecipherable things.chalk art festival free in indy with kids.jpg

I love talking my children to participate in the Indy area Chalk Art Festivals. We’re big fans of the annual events at both:
Hamilton Town Center (June 9)
Taylor Center of Natural History (June 21)

The annual event at Garfield Park on May 21, 2016 offers the chance for park-goers to participate in creating art on the sidewalks of the park. All ages are welcome, and you can even register for the chalk art competition!

Hamilton Town Center also offer a festival on June 18, 2016, where professional and amateur artists line the streets of the Center with beautiful chalk art creations. This event also features face painting, vendor booths, and a special appearance by Boomer and The Pacers!
