This new event is the chalk of the town!

Artists of all kinds will take to 119th St. for an all new event to hit Whiting
called Chalk-A-Lot. On Saturday, August 24 from 10 am – 2 pm you will not only
get to walk downtown Whiting seeing great art created right upon the sidewalks
but you will also be able to join in the fun if you’d like.

The Whiting Chamber Merchant Division is creating this event to bring a lively,
community driven outside art event to the downtown. Not only will there be featured art
along the sidewalks but attendees can pick up a a Chalk-A-Lot Menu of delicious
chocolate “tastes” at a variety of eateries in town. The play on words allows
for a fun event which everyone can get involved from the businesses to the
residents of Whiting to the visitors to our town for a day.

The day will also feature live acoustic music on the streets as well a variety
of street performers and a special Kids Court where kids can grab some chalk and
a spot in the court to create their own works of art.

If you are interested in having an “artist spot” on the street, it’s FREE but please

pre-register by emailing or

  You can represent yourself and “chalk” whatever you’d like or you perhaps you have

a business and would like to do something fun to represent your business. Be creative

and just have fun. PARTICIPATE and CREATE!
