Hosted by the Marietta-Cobb Museum of Art, over 98 artists from five countries will be chalking live on the streets surrounding the Square. Admission to the Chalk Fest is FREE.
“We have artists coming from around the world this year, including from Italy, Ukraine, Mexico, Canada and all over the United States,” says Sally Macaulay, Director of the Marietta-Cobb Museum of Art, which hosts the Chalktoberfest each year as a major fundraiser for the museum.

As if that wasn’t enough to get you there, over 100 craft beers will also be available during the joint Craft Beer Festival, occurring during the Chalktoberfest on Saturday, October 14 only. Tickets for the Craft Beer Festival are $40 each in advance for the first 500 tickets; then $45 for the next 500; and then $50 after that and at the gate. Plus, enjoy live music all day, with Douglas Cameron in concert Saturday Night.
