Chalk Walk is the Round Rock area’s largest festival for the arts, drawing thousands of people to Round Rock in just two days!

The event is FREE to attend and takes place in Centennial Plaza in downtown Round Rock.

Friday, October 6 | 5:00pm – 10:00pm

Saturday, October 7 | 10:00am – 7:00pm

This large-scale festival is produced by Round Rock Arts, a 501c3 nonprofit arts organization, and we could not launch Chalk Walk and Arts Festival each year without the support of our generous sponsors, volunteers, board members, and other members of the community.

Round Rock Arts’ goal is to provide a celebration of the arts accessible to all, so admission to Chalk Walk and Festival is free. Art is the theme and chalk is the medium. From start to finish, participating artists will create art in full view of the public, who are encouraged to interact with the artists as they use their amazing talents to create beautiful “murals.”
