Vermilion Chalk it Up

chalk it up

July marks the third year for this colorful event. This year, Main Street Vermilion partners with Ritter Public Library to celebrate their Centennial Anniversary.

Starting at noon, watch as the roads and walks along Main Street begin filling up with bright chalk drawings created by local artistic talent. Enjoy some family and kid-friendly interactive opportunities, too as you watch the streets transform. You can also buy $1 votes to elect your favorite work of art.

At 3PM, you're invited to Victory Park for a free, community-wide picnic to celebrate 100 years of Ritter Public Library. Enjoy hot dogs and hamburgers freshly prepared by the Lions Club and cupcakes from Vermilion's Small Town Sweets. A free concert in the park begins at 6PM starring Emily Keener, local talent and American Idol contestant.

Stroll this "middle-of-the-road" gallery of expression as you come downtown to shop and dine for the evening.
