The Oberlin Chalk Walk is returning for its 17th year! Join us for a day of artistic fun for people of all ages and skill levels where local and regional artists will create imaginative chalk drawings throughout downtown Oberlin.

The Oberlin Chalk Walk provides pastels and other supplies to participants at no cost (monetary donations are appreciated to help keep this event free for everyone).
