Last year the do-it-yourself (DIY) chalk activity was such a hit, we're bringing it back and dedicating more space for visitors to come and show us their skills. This program will take place once again in front of the Route 66 Wall of Fame adjacent to the Court Street Square parking lot
San Bernardino's Parks, Recreation and Community Services department and the San Bernardino City Unified School District will be hosting art workshops for the kids. Workshops will be taking place inside the Carousel Mall. Please visit a information booth for more information.
Free general public parking will be available at the Carousel Mall parking lot along 2nd Street, just across from Starbucks.
The two-day event is open to student and community artists. Artists will be able to both display and sell their original artwork on-site. We recommend setting up the ability to accept credit card purchases to ensure opportunity for success. There is no booth fee; however, if an artist plans to sell artwork, they must have a California State Seller's Permit and obtain a one-day sales permit ($12.00) from City of San Bernardino Business Registration Office. Permit must be displayed at your space on the evening of the event. Note: All transactions must take place directly between the artists and the customer.
