Have you ever been to a chalk art festival? You won't believe what artists can create right on a city sidewalk! One of the country's biggest events is taking place on June 3rd and 4th a quick walk from our urban-inspired hotel in Denver. Don't miss the 2017 Denver Chalk Festival in Larimer Square!
Based on The Piazza dell'Arte ("square of art") movement that dates back to the 16th century in Italy, the Denver Chalk Art Festival captures the spirit of this community event. More than 200 amateur and professional artists will be showing off their talents. Using only charcoal or pencil pastels, the artists will create beautiful art right before your eyes. While you watch the chalk artists create their masterpieces, you can enjoy live music and Italian food. Stop by the tasting tent for a pint of craft beer or a glass of wine. And bring your little ones, because there will be a family activity area where kids can test their own chalk skills on the sidewalk.
Larimer Square is conveniently located about half a mile from our Downtown Denver hotel. After seeing the amazing chalk art with your family or friends, you can be back in your hotel room or suite in almost no time. It's about a 10-minute walk or 5-minute drive from our urban refuge in the heart of Denver. Change into your swimsuit for a dip in our outdoor rooftop pool or enjoy a cold craft beer and locally-sourced cuisine at The Lockwood, our brand new hotel restaurant.
