Seriously, let’s chalk about foster care…

For 20 years, Utah Foster Care has partnered with 100+ local artists in presenting our annual Chalk Art Festival, all to support Utah’s foster families! We enjoyed an expanded free family celebration featuring Relative Race, world-renowned 3-D chalk artist Julie Kirk Purcell, Bohemian Brewery, our interactive Kids Korner, and Foster Families of the Year.

Stay tuned for June, 2023 festival details.

LET’S SOCIALIZE

Help us raise awareness for foster care by sharing foster facts and your family festival fun!

VOLUNTEER

Be a Part of the Magic

Utah Foster Care’s annual Chalk Art Festival would not be possible without a team of  volunteers. We welcome corporate volunteers, as well as individuals who want to show their support for Utah’s foster families. We count on our volunteers to layout art squares, staff our information booths, and provide tender loving care to our chalk artists.

Volunteer registration will begin Spring of 2023. In the meantime, you can volunteer for other ongoing activities!

OUR GRACIOUS HOST

By Deborah Lindner, Festival Organizer

The Gateway has been both the venue and a valuable partner ever since Utah Foster Care’s first Chalk Art Festival took to the streets, back in 2003. Back then, we did everything we could to attract artists to our new event. Now, street painters of every age flock to this annual community art festival.

The Gateway has proven itself as a premier event destination, closing its main artery, Rio Grande Street, to provide the canvas on which artists toil away to create the vibrant works of art that visitors can enjoy – for free!

We thank the management and marketing team at The Gateway, as well as its parent company Vestar, for years of support for Utah’s foster care community and the Chalk Art Festival.

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!

We wouldn’t be able to Chalk About Foster Care without you.
