The event will be held at The Phil Patterson Memorial Park, and DPR encourages all artists, no matter the age or skill level to share their talents with the community as part of the annual event.

Area businesses will showcase their many talents as well, providing event attendees with a litany of goods and services.

The ever popular chalk walk will officially close the book on the 2021 summer with the event in an annual back-to-school prelude in the beautiful outdoors. The event will feature the performance of widely popular Blake Dunn

“Help us to empower and support art appreciation as we engage in this opportunity to highlight our local professional artists,” A press release from Dickinson Parks and Recreation said. “We provide the Chalk, you provide the inspiration!”

“We are looking for a premiere sponsor and local businesses to participate in our annual


Chalk Walk event as an opportunity for local businesses and families to come together and support the arts,” the release said. “Area businesses are encouraged to come and showcase their business by setting up a table or booth and highlight what they offer the community of Dickinson. Dickinson Parks and Recreation is always looking for ways to get businesses involved and we hope to see you there.”
