The 26th Annual Chalk It Up to Sacramento will be held over Labor Day Weekend - September 3 -5, 2016 - at Fremont Park in downtown Sacramento. Celebrate the talents of hundreds of local artists and musicians at Sacramento’s favorite family festival. 

The three-day event raises money for grants programs to fund youth arts education programs in all disciplines in local schools and in the community. Chalk It Up! features more than 200 volunteer artists, sponsored by local businesses, creating chalk art masterpieces on the sidewalks surrounding the park.  

Live music is featured all day long throughout the festival. This year’s Music Stage will feature 30 top-notch local acts which will be announced this summer!

Hands-on art activities for children, led by professional artists and community groups will be featured each day. Bring the whole family. There is truly something for everyone of any age to enjoy, with a broad variety of community groups, craft booths, gourmet food trucks, and a wine and beer garden. Access to the park and the event is always FREE to the public.

Chalk It Up! to Sacramento is an all volunteer 501(c)(3) charitable organization engaging over 400 volunteers each year in support of the festival.  Mark your calendar and bring your friends and family to enjoy a memorable weekend at Fremont Park in downtown Sacramento – all for FREE.
