We've all doodled with sidewalk chalk in our day. If you've ever stepped back after finishing a design, and thought, "Hey, that's not too bad," put your artistic talents up against other artists in the area during the 4th annual Sidewalk Chalk Art Contest hosted by the Newburgh Farmer's Market on Saturday, May 25th.

The competition is open to all ages and skill levels with awards being handed out in the following age categories:

  • Child: 5-9
  • Youth: 10-17
  • Adult: 18+

You don't even have to bring your own chalk! Everyone who registers will be given a 24-pack of sidewalk and assigned a space to create your masterpiece upon arrival.

As noted in the event posting on the Newburgh Farmer's Market Facebook page, registration is free, however pre-registration is required and must be done by May 17th, one week before the competition.

There are only 35 spots available so register soon (if not right this minute) by sending an e-mail to events@historicnewburgh.org.
