Mark your diary! 17-20 January 2019
This January we are partnering with Central Coast Council to bring you Chalk The Walk at The Entrance!
We’ll be turning Waterfront Plaza into a giant canvas. Our seasoned Street Art professionals will work alongside local Artists, kids and the general public to splash some summer colour on the streets in our open air Art Gallery. This year’s theme is ‘Coastal Living’.
Each time we run a street art festival we are excited to see locations come alive with colour, activity and creativity. Chalk The Walk @ The Entrance is sure to make an impact!

How can you get involved? We’re glad you asked!
Chalk the Walk: Participate in our Artist Showcase
Up to 20 artists (18 years and over) have the opportunity to showcase their skills and create their own chalk pavement artwork.
Lead artist, Anton Pulvirenti will run a 2 hour workshop of tips and tricks for working on the streets, and then you will have a day to create your own masterpiece for public exhibition at the Waterfront Plaza.
All levels of experience welcome!

Children of all ages are free to go wild and chalk some colour on our chalkboard snakes.
Chalk the Walk: See the Spectacle!
Head down to the plaza over the weekend to see the Artists creating their masterpieces, strike a pose on an awe-inspiring 3D artwork and our coastal cars, and when the creative urge takes you, do some chalking yourself! There will be live entertainment, amusement rides and daily pelican feeding. For the full program click here.
