2020 Chalk Art Event with the Perry Farmers' Market

10 Aug 2020 12:00 PM | Anonymous

Perry's 2020 Chalk Art Event is August 15th!

“The Twenties” will be all the rage ...

Come to the downtown Festival Plaza in Perry, NY, from 8:30am to 4:30pm to see professional artists’ unique interpretations rendered large at this year’s event.

Over 20 artists will work throughout the day to create 5’x5’ pastel works, and Feature Artist Erika Thurkins of East Aurora will work at a 10’x10’ scale in the pavilion area of the plaza. The plaza will be closed through 3pm Sunday afternoon for those who wish to view the art at their own pace. 

Music lovers will enjoy live performances and a shaded seating area all day. Kelly's Old Timers, Creek Bend, and The Brothers Blue will be playing.

Guests can pick up homegrown produce and enjoy all the usual benefits of the Perry Farmers’ Market, located on Borden Avenue this week from 8:30am-12:30pm.

In a nod to this year’s unique community health issues, local artist Michael Sparling has reimagined the festival’s mascot, this time, appropriately masked.

All guests will be asked to wear a face covering and to practice social distancing while on the festival plaza.

For a revised schedule of events, please refer to www.perrychalkfestival.com. If significant rainfall is forecast, chalking will take place on Saturday, August 22nd.

This event is made possible through generous contributions from local government, businesses, individuals and from the Perry Area Chamber of Commerce.
