Event description

Description

The sidewalks along Shattuck Ave. in the Gourmet Ghetto in North Berkeley are the target of artists young and old, professional and greenhorn during the 19th CHOCOLATE & CHALK ART FESTIVAL on Sunday, August 27.

MAKE ART! With no fees to artists, areas of sidewalk are assigned for you to create your own fanciful chalk drawings. Same-day art registration takes place 10AM-5PM in event booths at 1495, 1607 & 1730 Shattuck Ave. where colorful artist's chalk is available for $10 or BYO. A CHALK ART CONTEST for the best drawing will be judged after 4PM. Cash prizes, sponsored by The Coder School Berkeley, are $150, $100, $50 and runners-up get a $25 gift certificate from Books, Inc. Winners will be notified by Wednesday after the event. See prior winners at AnotherBullwinkelShow.com/Chalk-Art-2014/

EAT CHOCOLATE! Purchase tickets (20 for $20) prior to the event here or at event booths at 1451, 1495, 1607 & 1730 Shattuck Ave. The to-go menu features over 25 items including picante habañero chocolate gelato, goat cheese truffles, brownies, Oreo shakes, or savory menu items such as Caribbean chocolate soup, chocolate chicken tikka kabobs, and more. Spend your tickets on these delights available in the local businesses then savor your chocolate as you stroll along the sidewalks, viewing the artwork.

SUPER FUN! Enter your tickets in a raffle for specialty items. Festival booths fill the blocks between Rose and Vine Streets. There’s even a car to draw on with chalk, balloon twisters, and face painters. Enjoy Singha beer or wine at the Vine Street Stage where you can hear the Rusty String Express (Bluegrass), Humanistic Trio (Jazz), or Laura Weinback (Jazz Violin).

This is a family-friendly free event produced by Another Bullwinkel Show 510.548.5335 and sponsored by the North Shattuck Association, Singha Beer, The Coder School Berkeley, Books, Inc., Berkeley Community Media, East Bay Loop, and the East Bay Express. For a good time, take BART to Downtown Berkeley and stroll north six blocks. AnotherBullwinkelShow.com/chocolate-chalk-art/
