Chalkfest is a project envisioned by The 500 Block Association, a group of business, artists and native Buffalo residents to revitalize the 500 Block of Main Street.

The vision of the 500 block is to bring artistic and cultural value to the buildings and pedestrians utilizing these blocks. ChalkFest will be a two day family event focusing on the use of chalk as a medium for art. This is an exciting format that will bring thousands of people to our location while remaining focused to our mission of turning the 500 Block of Main Street into an Art & Cultural Destination.
