Loomis Eggplant Street Chalk Art Contest

Annual Loomis Eggplant Street Fair

October 5, 2019 @ 9:00 am 5:00 pm

Loomis Eggplant Festival

Loomis, CA- Be excited! A Street Chalk Art Contest is coming for the first time as part of the daylong community Loomis Eggplant Street Fair. The free Chalk Art Contest, which will take place on Taylor Road in front of the High Hand Art Gallery, is an opportunity for all levels of abilities to express themselves through their art drawn on asphalt.

Loomis artist Brenda Dominguez, who has been part of the Loomis Art Loop in previous years and has provided beautiful artworks for all to see, is heading up the Chalk Art Contest.

“I know this will bring a new dimension to the festival. There’s so much talent in Placer County and this will be a fun place to show it off.”

Brenda Dominguez, Loomis artist

The Street Chalk Art Contest will have three categories: Children, amateurs and professionals. Each of these categories will have a first-, second- and third-place winner. The winners will be selected by a panel from the Loomis Chamber and will receive a prize. The public is welcome to vote for the People’s Choice Award.
