Centennial Plaza will transform into a canvass on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 2-3, for the Round Rock Chalk Walk Arts Festival.

Legendary Texas swing band Asleep at the Wheel will perform at 8 p.m. Friday.

Chalk Walk is Round Rock Art’s version of an Italian Street painting festival. Artists are free to create, with chalk pastels, a picture on the concrete. Drawings are created in full view of the public, who are encouraged to interact with the artists as they use their amazing talents to create beautiful “murals” before their audience’s eyes. The fact that the paintings disappear at the end of the fest makes their beauty even more appealing.

Chalk Walk is Round Rock’s largest and most prestigious festival for arts and cultural events drawing over 32,000 people annually to town. The festival features numerous vendors, sponsors, and artists, including chalk artists, musicians vocal groups, theatrical performances, food and drinks, and children’s performances.

Chalk Walk is free.

Festival Times
Friday, Oct. 2: 5-10 p.m. with Asleep at the Wheel concert starting at 8 p.m.
Saturday, Oct. 3: 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
