This is a free Two-Day Chalk Arts Festival. On the stretch of road between Hoopers Island General Store and Old Salty’s, a band of Chalk Artists from across the country will be joining us for two days in the early fall of 2023. These artists have been selected by the “Chalk Mafia” Facebook group to participate with Hoopers Island’s Chalk Artist Ed Krell.
We are planning to continue the celebration of the Island in 2023. We will continue the Chalk Art workshops for all ages on-site led by Lori Antoinette of LAntArt.com and even more opportunities for the public to experience this interactive medium at the festival. The Festival is a free, family-friendly event held rain or shine as the artists will be working within a Boat Barn that attendees walk through to watch the process and meet the artists. Come by Saturday morning to see how it all begins and circle back on Sunday to be amazed by the finished pieces. There will also be entertainment by local live bands throughout both days with food, art, and nonprofit vendors from Dorchester County.
The finished pieces from 2022 are now on display at the Dorchester Center for the Arts in Cambridge Maryland and are currently open for bidding.
Vendors and Sponsors are invited to apply, see links below.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about becoming a sponsor or vendor.
Art vendors will be able to exhibit and sell their self-made pieces. There will be a Non-Profit Area to educate about local issues and we are inviting interest groups with topics such as the Chesapeake Bay Environment, Mental Health Awareness, and Local Cultural Museums.
We are inviting food vendors and will have locally made sweets and treats. We are inviting local musicians to come and play.
Food vendors will need an approval from Dorchester County Maryland health department, the form can be found here: Health Form
