It’s fun, it’s free, and its just around the corner in downtown Lafayette! Artists and viewers of all ages are invited to participate in the 14th annual Sidewalk Chalk & Music Festival, presented by The Friends of the Education Building Inc. and First Baptist Church of Lafayette! Meet us on the corner of 7th & North for this free, outdoor, family-friendly outing, which attracts over 200 artists and spectators every year.

Sidewalk chalking will begin Thursday, September 2, and continue through Saturday, September 4. Spaces are reserved on a first-come, first-serve basis each day, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday. Artists of all ages and experience are welcome. . .you’ll even get a free t-shirt (while supplies last) and the opportunity to ring the bell in the tower!

New to the festival this year is a music component that will feature local musicians from across a wide range of genres and musical styles.

More details, including Saturday’s music line-up, are available on our Facebook Event page:
