Galena ChalkFest

Special Event

Our parking lot will turn into a giant canvas for our 2024 Chalkfest! This family-friendly event brings us all together for a day of artistic fun. Plan to bring the family, to chalk or to watch the chalkers in action, enjoy live music, and create in the kid’s drawing zone! Food and drink will be available for purchase. We welcome featured artist, Dan Leick!
