It’s a festival that celebrates street art and craft beer! Enjoy a fall afternoon at Chalktoberfest, in the Marietta Square.
You can sample craft beers, listen to live music from local artists, eat great food, and watch the work of professional chalk artists unfold in front of your eyes. (There is also a community chalk competition with categories for children, teens, adults, and schools.)
Chalktoberfest takes place on Saturday, October 8th and Sunday October 9th, 2022.
- Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
- Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Much of the event is FREE to attend — but you’ll need a ticket to the beer-tasting event.
There are free concerts all day on Saturday and Sunday. See the music line-up and details on the beer festival below.

Craft Beer Festival
The beer fest takes place on Saturday between noon and 5 p.m. Because of permitting restrictions, nothing can be served after the 5:00 cutoff time — so plan your arrival with this in mind.
A ticket comes with unlimited samples of over 120 types of brew and over 25 varieties of wine from Total Wine. Plus, you get a souvenir tasting cup.
You can save $5 by buying tickets online in advance.
The advance purchase price is $40, plus a $3.19 fee — or $45 at the gate. You won’t save much buying in advance, but you’ll be guaranteed a spot (the organizers say they expect to sell out).
The Festival is rain or shine and there are no refunds due to weather.
