2017 Venice Chalk Festival

2017 Venice Chalk Festival

Venice, FL -Celebrating Ten Years of Chalk – Congratulations to the Chalk Festival for another amazing year of brilliant chalk creations, libations and live entertainment. Their vendors showed off many different eclectic wares like jewelry, clothing, the German Bakery and so many more!

Artists were found on site throughout the weekend talking about their artwork, their passions, their travels and their very interesting lives. It was truly a pleasure to visit this event again this year.

The 2017 Chalk Festival celebrated its 10-Year Anniversary November 10-13 – bringing together the biggest family of Chalk enthusiasts. For a few weeks this “Chalk Festival Family” came together to showcase the largest installations of 3D illusions and fine art on pavement by renown artists from around the world, while remaining approachable for anyone who wants to give it a try!

The really neat thing about this event is that visitors are able to interact with the artists up close and personal while they are creating their masterpieces. The artists also create 3-D interactive works where you really feel like you are right in the middle of the action, or the jungle, or the show! It won’t necessarily look like you are in the interactive art until you look at the image on your camera. It’s absolutely fascinating!

This year had a giant elephant in the middle of the Airport runway which acted as a centerpiece of the Chalk Festival 2017. If you’d like to stay nearby and experience this event for yourself, make reservations to stay with us next year! 4-Day unlimited passes are available for the event! Check out just a handful of the amazing works of pavement art in the slideshow below:
