The 6th annual Quad City Arts’ Chalk Art Fest will take place July 16-17, 2022 at Schwiebert Riverfront Park in downtown Rock Island, IL. The festival starts at 10 a.m. and goes till 7pm on Saturday, July 16 and 5pm on Sunday, July 17.

This FREE, live outdoor arts festival brings together hundreds of artists that spend hours transforming the cement pavement at Schwiebert Park into a museum of chalk art, while competing for cash prizes. Visitors strolling by can see the wonderful works of art as they come to life, vote for their favorite and even do some chalk art of their own, by taking part in the community piece.

A full line-up of live music, food trucks, concessions, beer garden, face painting and a kid’s chalk zone area, are all part of the festivities. Over $1,800 in cash prizes will be awarded including a people’s choice and youth category award.
