Chalk the Walk



June 18, 2022 – Chalk the Walk (On the boardwalk from 16th-18th Streets) 



The theme for this year’s Chalk the Walk is: TBD



Chalk the Walk takes over the Virginia Beach Boardwalk from 10:00am-5:00pm on June 18, 2022, as artists and “wanna-be artists” gather to turn the boardwalk into an impromptu canvas of color!



All participants must register by 12:30pm to qualify for the competition. All drawings must be completed by 3:30pm to be eligible for prizes. Registration is free, and all participants should bring their own chalk.



At Chalk the Walk, participants draw four by four-foot chalk drawings for three blocks along the boardwalk.



Competitors will complete chalk drawings to be evaluated by a panel of judges. Judges will score the drawings according to criteria such as composition, use of color, adherence to theme, and creativity. There will be three competitive divisions: Amateur, Professional, and Youth. The Youth division will be for ages 12-16.



Trophies and cash prizes will be awarded for each division. Winners will be announced at 4:45pm on the boardwalk at 17th Street.



We will be registering participants on site from 10:00am-12:30pm. Capacity is limited.



There is no fee to participate, but it is recommended that artists bring their own chalk
