Chalk Walk

Chalk Walk 2020 2

The Village of New Lenox is excited to announce that our 2nd annual Chalk Walk event will take place this summer on Saturday, July 18th, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in our Village commons (101 Veterans Parkway). 

Chalk Walk is an event that offers the opportunity to create a masterpiece in the Village Commons with sidewalk chalk.  This event is open to everyone, including families, students, professional artists, aspiring artists - all who are interested are welcome!  If creating a work of art isn't for you, then join us to stroll through the Commons and enjoy the art being created by your neighbors.

In addition to the artwork that will be found on the Commons sidewalk, the event will include live music, food and beverages, and other fun art-based activities.

To participate in this event as an artist, you must register for a space.  Registration for Chalk Walk is free and is open to all, and we hope you join us for this great celebration of art, regardless of your skill level!  We recommend registering in advance as spaces are limited.  However, if spaces are still available on the day of the event, we will be allowing registration that day.  Artists will have the chance to win prizes in various categories.

To register, please fill out this FORM.

Admission to this event is free.  Guests of all ages are permitted.

A portion of Veterans Parkway will be closed to traffic during this event to accommodate the event activities.  Limited parking will be available on the street.

Parking is available in the south lot of the Village Hall and at Trinity Services.  Parking will be available at Old Plank Trail Community Bank after 1:00 p.m.
