Chalk Fest Adding Color to Downtown Fargo

Posted: Updated:

The sidewalks of Downtown Fargo are about to get a lot more colorful. For the first time ever, Fargo Chalk Fest kicks off in collaboration with The Arts Partnership.

You don't have to be a professional to get in on the fun, even though some serious art and chalk skills we be on display. In fact, organizers are encouraging anyone and everyone to grab some chalk and draw away.

Local artists McCal Johnson and Bree Reetz did just that Monday morning on the Valley Today. The artists drew a bison and a jackalope riding a tandem bicycle.

Event creator Anjali Lall says that type of creativity is exactly what they hope to bring out in Downtown Fargo. "I think it'll bring back a lot of memories of childhood. I think it'll be really fun for the youth of the community, as well."

The festival runs from 6-8 Monday night and will also include live music and free Spicy Pie pizza on the Great Northern Bicycle Co. plaza. (425 N. Broadway, in Downtown Fargo) The Arts Partnership would like this event to become an annual outing in Fargo.
