86 national and international professional chalk artists, public chalk competition, craft beer festival, live music, and activities for the whole family. Chalktoberfest, the signature event of the Marietta Museum of Art, will celebrate its 8th year in 2022. Led by Executive Director, Sally Macaulay, Chalktoberfest has seen exponential growth over the years with over 100,000 attendees in 2019. This unique event enables the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art to fulfill its mission of “Building Community through Art,” and the response from the community has been overwhelming. In addition, Chalktoberfest has won numerous awards including Festival of the Year by Cobb Life Magazine, the Mayor’s Art Award for the city of Marietta, and Event of the Year through Cobb Travel and Tourism. Marietta Square is transformed into a massive art studio where artists dazzle spectators from 10AM to 5PM during the two-day event. There will be a large number of award-winning and established professional artists who bring the street to life with their large-scale paintings. In addition to the incredible art on the street, Chalktoberfest will have the annual Craft Beer Festival only on Saturday, October 8th from 12 to 5. Over 125 craft beers and 25 wines will be available for unlimited tasting with purchase of a ticket.
