Chalk on the Water at Lake Anne

June 9 and 10, 2018


All events are RAIN OR SHINE.

Chalk on the Water at Lake Anne 2018 is a two-day street art festival on Lake Anne Plaza in Reston, VA where participants of all skill levels are invited to create beautiful chalk drawings right on the plaza. The event is open to professional artists, amateur artists, families, and kids of all ages and prizes will be awarded in all categories!

Chalk on the Water is one of the area’s most unique and fun events that attracts a diverse and motivated audience and promotes public art in Reston. Participants are invited to show off their creativity and realize chalk drawings on Lake Anne Plaza, in the heart of Reston’s most historic area.

The festival draws a wide range of participants and even larger group of visitors to witness their amazing talent. Last year, the event saw a turnout larger than any year previous, completely selling out of spaces and chalks, so we encourage you to register in advance!

*We are no longer accepting pre-registrations without payment.
