Breckenridge Creative Arts is pleased to announce the return of its 3-day Street Arts Festival as part of the Fourth of July weekend activities in Breckenridge. Now in its second year, the festival, which runs July 2–4 from 12 pm to 4 pm each day, transforms the downtown Breckenridge Arts District, from Ridge Street along Washington Avenue to Main Street, into a place where community artists of all ages gather—joining established graffiti, chalk, hip-hop, and breakdance artists—to make art.

This year’s festival highlights include: 3-D pavement drawings and sidewalk illusion by chalk artists Naomi Haverland, Micah Hollenbeck, Benjamin Hummel and Cara Lynch; temporary graffiti murals by “Gamma” Acosta, Jeremiah Clark “Jher451”, Chuck “Emit” and James “East” Foster; breakdance performances and hip-hop classes offered by members from Streetside South; and live DJ performances by DJ Crisp, DJ Brett Lomoro and DJ DC.

And, of course, the annual chalk art contest returns—a Fourth of July favorite that has been going on for more than a decade. Participants spend a couple hours completing their chalk drawings on Washington Avenue, followed by judging and awards. The chalk art contest, which is free and designed for children and teens, starts on Monday, July 4 at 12 pm and offers cash prizes for 1st–3rd place in age group. Participants can sign-up and get their chalk at the Fuqua Livery Stable; the numbered chalk squares are located on Washington Avenue. Contest judging begins at 3 pm, and winners will be announced at 4 pm.
