OCAF: 2022 Old Orcutt Chalk Festival
On the last Saturday in September, Old Town Orcutt tunrs into an explosion of chalk art masterpieces, live music, public art, and community engagement. Since 2011, the OCAF Chalk Festival is a hugely popular event that brings over 1000 people to Historic Old Town Orcutt.
The Chalk Festival features over two dozen arts and craft booths, nonprofit organization, kids corner, and fabulous culinary arts vendors. Experience an amazing array of locally created art, custom jewelry, and woodworking. Feed that hunger by supporting our local food trucks serving up a variety of tasty food options. Encourage kids’ creativity at our KIDS Corner.
The main attraction of the event is the sidewalk/street chalk paintings that are created over the course of the day. Supported by our generous Sponsors, and brought to life by our talented Volunteer Artists, these squares turn from gray concrete paths into beautiful expressions of artistic vision. Chalk artists begin these chalk masterpieces early in the morning and the public is encouraged to watch their progress throughout the day.
