June 13 will mark Zeeland’s fourth Chalk Festival, but first time this event has combined with Music on Main.  The event will be held on Elm Street (between Cherry Street and Main Street) from 4pm to 9pm.  

The public is welcome to stroll the street to watch the artist actively working on their pieces from 1pm to 4pm. From 4pm to 9pm the event will include the finished products, an opportunity to speak with the artists, live music, food truck, outdoor games as well as the ability to vote for your favorite.  The event will include entertainment for all ages!  

Artists will be using chalk as their medium and the street as their canvas.  They will be creating pieces that are 6’ x 6’ large along the street.  Event goers can vote for their favorite Thursday night and watch social media for the winner to be announced on Friday.  

This is a great way to expose young children to appreciate art in a different form!  The artists for the event rang from teens to adults as well as professional training and self-taught.

The artists being featured at the event are Gwendolyn Russell, Esther Heethuis, Johnathan Buggs, Danae Wilson, Carly Schaub, Ella Pettit, and Emily Miller.

Music OFF Main will feature performances by The Johnny Park band from 4pm to 6pm and the Bakker Hanegraaff Band from 6pm to 9pm.
