We can’t wait to “CHALK” about foster care with you!

2024 Theme – Because of You

It’s all about amazing street art, and it’s also about kids needing safe homes. Each summer, this free community Chalk Art Festival turns the streets into a gallery of vibrant street murals. Thousands come to enjoy the festival while we share the message of the importance of foster care in our community. 

We could not do this without the talent of our artists! Our artists truly are the heart of our festival and give us the perfect backdrop to share our message about the importance of Utah Foster Care.
