Annual Chalk Drawing Competition

The Annual Chalk Drawing Competition is held the first Saturday of October to kick off our Red Rock Arts Festival each year. Applications come out at the beginning of September and individuals or teams of up to 5 people submit a proposal to be approved by the Moab Arts staff. Applications must be submitted in advance and we have a kids and an adult category to encourage people of all ages to participate. The competition takes place at the Moab Information Center with DJ PiMo and winners are chosen via a public vote. Participation is free and chalk pastels are provided. Prizes include various goodies from local businesses as well as being the Featured Artist at our Red Rock Arts Street Festival.
