Victoria Chalk Festival, BC

Work © Lorelle Miller

Significantly expanded since last year, the Victoria Chalk Festival owns the title as the largest chalk festival in Canada.

The streets of downtown Victoria will be adorned with a menagerie of arts. The Royal BC Museum will host a 3D chalk painting in the free admission area. On top of the art, Government Street’s closure zone will host far more artists than last year, as well as a food village and kids’ area.

Each artist participating in the event will have an 8’ x 10’ on which to paint their work. The event goes through the weekend of the 13th.
