Chalk The Block is one of the largest free public arts festivals in the Southwest and draws more than 40,000 people every year. The event is so popular that people were heartbroken to find out the event was made virtual last year. Organizers made the decision to make Chalk The Block virtual for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic to keep people in the community safe.

El Paso now has one of the highest vaccination rates in the country and the time is right for Chalk The Block to come back in person. Chalk The Block is back in downtown El Paso for its 14th-anniversary event.

Chalk The Block is happening Saturday, October 9th and Sunday, October 10th in the Downtown Arts District, and the El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department is currently looking for participants. Chalk artists and vendors who would like to participate must submit their applications online, no paper applications will be accepted this year. To apply, click on the according link:

Chalk The Block is a great event for people of all ages to enjoy and is a great opportunity for local artists to showcase their work. People can also enjoy seeing live art again in person.
