2024 Theme: Flights of Fantasy

Witness the transformation of the Virginia Beach Boardwalk as artists unite for Chalk the Walk, turning the boardwalk into a vibrant canvas of color!

During Chalk the Walk, participants create extraordinary four-by-four-foot chalk drawings along three blocks of the boardwalk. Competitors unleash their creativity with themed chalk drawings to be assessed by a panel of judges. Evaluation criteria include composition, use of color, adherence to the theme, and overall creativity. The competition features three divisions: Amateur, Professional, and Youth (ages 12-16).

​​What kinds of fantastic fantasy worlds can you imagine?  Let books, games, movies, TV, or your own imagination guide you in creating chalk art right on the “canvas” of the Virginia Beach boardwalk.  Scenes, characters, lands, experiences, architecture, transportation, and more are all waiting to be explored as chalk art depicting Flights of Fantasy.

To qualify for the competition, all participants must register by 12:30 pm, and drawings must be completed by 3:30 pm to be eligible for prizes. Registration is free, and participants are responsible for bringing their own chalk.

Trophies and cash prizes await winners in each division, with the announcement scheduled for 4:45 pm on the boardwalk at 17th Street.

Free on-site registration is available from 10:00 am to 12:30 pm, and capacity is limited. Don’t miss the chance to be part of this colorful and creative event along the picturesque Virginia Beach Boardwalk!
