BELFAST — The 7th annual Belfast Chalk Walk 2023 celebration of artistic expression will take place on Saturday, Sept. 23, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the heart of downtown Belfast and Heritage Park. Rain date September 24, 2023.

“Mark your calendars and get ready for a captivating journey into the world of art and imagination,” said Waterfall Arts, in a news release. This event is “an extraordinary chalk drawing festival that promises to ignite your senses and inspire your soul.”

Thanks to the support of Belfast’s Parks and Recreation Department, the artists who contribute their time and work, the hustle of volunteers, and donations large and small, the Belfast Chalk Walk has grown exponentially since its first year, according to the release.

“This year over two thousand people have expressed interest, demonstrating the power of the arts to transform a small Midcoast town gathering into a destination event,” said Waterfall Arts.

The Belfast Harborwalk will come alive with vibrant colors and creations, as talented artists converge to transform ordinary sidewalks into magnificent masterpieces. With approximately 30 designated spots along the scenic Harborwalk, downtown Belfast, from the boardwalk to Steamboat Landing Park, attendees will have the unique opportunity to witness the magic of artistry in action.

Each spot is assigned to a registered artist, and the canvas is ready for their creative touch.
