Chalk Art/Corn Roast

2018 Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival & annual corn roast!

It’s hard to believe that the Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival has been taking place for over 25 years.  Since 1991 the Sidewalk Chalk Art Festival has grown to be one of the most anticipated and fun events in Washington County. Anyone can take part in the fun, no matter what their artistic skills might be. It is great to see the creative drawings taking shape throughout the day and to stroll the downtown blocks after the event to see the wonderful artwork.

Celebrate Forest Grove's agricultural roots with this fun annual festival, which offers fresh-roasted corn, along with burgers, sausages, hot dogs and more. Expect interactive displays, live entertainment, a quilt exhibit and children’s activities, including an obstacle course. The event takes place on the west lawn of Marsh Hall (Pacific campus) and is free and open to all.
