Victoria Chalk Festival

chalkWelcome to Canada’s largest street painting festival! This family friendly, free-to-attend arts celebration presents some of the world’s top international chalk artists as well as artists from the local community and the Lower Mainland.

This year, the festival significantly expands across beautiful downtown and includes the Royal BC Museum which hosts exciting 3D chalk painting within a free admission area as well as a performance stage featuring many singers, dancers and drummers from our First Nation’s community.
