UPDATE: Due to increased concerns surrounding the pandemic, we were unable to register a sufficient number of chili teams to conduct a fun and competitive contest, so unfortunately, we have canceled the Chili Cook-Off portion of our event. Our chalk art contest will still take place and in addition to judges’ choice awards being presented at the event, photos of all chalk art designs will be placed online for people’s choice voting.

The Martinsville Chamber is so excited that we are gearing up for a great comeback event after taking a hiatus due to the pandemic last year! Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 25th at 10:30 am and plan to join us for our 10th annual Martinsville Chamber Chalk Art Contest.

Chalk Art Contest for all ages

Calling artists of all ages! We would love to see what you’ve got! Join us for the always fun chalk art contest. Fun for the whole family, including music provided by Two For The Show, on the Main Connection campus (former school admin building at 460 S. Main St.) in Martinsville. Entry is just $5 per square and there will be awards for all age groups. The chili cook-off and sidewalk chalk art contest are signature events for the Martinsville Chamber. We could not offer these fun, family-friendly events without the generous support of our community.
