Artists and creatives of all ages and skill levels are invited to participate in the first ever Broadway Square Chalk Fest this summer! This free, outdoor event includes chalk, cement, music and artistic encouragement.

Talented Fargo-Moorhead artist Annette Marchand will help Broadway Square host the first of three Summer Chalk Fests at Broadway Square and a common subject in Marchand's work, "Wildlife," will be the focusing theme of this first Chalk Fest. 

The Fargo-Moorhead Community Theatre will also be on-site with activities centering around the wildlife theme, offering Temporary Jungle Tattoos and creating Coloring Animal Finger Puppets.
