Artists invited at 7th annual Riverfront Chalk Festival & Art Contest



Lynchburg, Virginia – All Lynchburg artists are invited to attend at the 7th annual Riverfront Chalk Festival & Art Contest on Saturday.

The event will take place on Jefferson St. in Downtown from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Depending on the level of competition, artists must pay a $10 or $20 fee. The theme for this year is “Color for Cultures,” but artists are free to draw whatever they choose. The best artist can win $500 prize.

“We really wanted to bring art downtown. We have such a vibrant cultural district down here,” Amazement Square Vice President Morgan Kreutz says. “We really wanted to give the artists in the community the ability to express themselves in a fun and creative way.”

For those who aren’t competing, the event will feature dance performances by Kuumba Dance Ensemble & Kaleidoscope Studio of the Arts and various food trucks like Kona Ice and Tali’s Grill.
