Chalktoberfest 2022 is Back!

Next weekend, one of Marietta’s favorite events is back … Chalktoberfest 2022! The weather should be perfect, to accompany the incredible artists and of course there will be plenty of Fontis Water on hand!

Chalktoberfest began as a fund raiser for the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art (MCMA) in 2013 and in eight years has grown to an event that attracts more than 100,000 people to the Marietta Square.

A fun event for everyone, Chalktoberfest has also been awarded Best Festival in Cobb County by Cobb Life Magazine in 2016 and 2017 and received the Mayor’s Art Award for the City of Marietta.

The festival will include Chalk artist, food trucks, crafts for children, amateur chalk contests, antique cars, and arts and crafts vendors! There will also be a craft beer and wine festival. Children can enjoy a play area, and live concerts will also take place on Marietta Square next weekend! This family friendly event is free of charge to the public.  There is a fee to participate in the Craft Beer Festival which will feature over 100 craft beers and 25 wines.

So make your plans today to attend Chalktoberfest 2022 next weekend on the Marietta Square! We will be there and can’t wait to see our artist block!
