Entertainment in the Village & Chalk Art Oasis



What is Entertainment in The Village at the Chain of Parks Art Festival?

  • This is the perfect spot for kid-friendly solo acts and less-music-focused entertainers like storybook tellers, educational demonstrations, performance artists, etc. This is in a grassy area with a 10×10 white tent, chair, amp, and mic (no stage or sound engineer). 
  • Audiences fluctuate and frequently require a performer to call to attendees to gather ’round. The core audience is small children and their parents. Interactive props are helpful! 
  • The Village is an area within the Festival that provides opportunities for community connections to an estimated 35-40,000+ enthusiastic visitors! The purpose of this area is to promote organizations that support the arts in our community. The Village incorporates Community Partners, Pop-Up Studios, Sponsor Booths, and the historical Jacques Le Moyne Encampment, with fun foods, ENTERTAINMENT, and more!
  • Our Main Stage is located in the Center Court on Calhoun St. and features a variety of local bands, aspiring singer/songwriters, dance troupes, and other crowd-pleasing local performing arts groups (see separate application if that applies to you).

What is Entertainment in The Chalk Artist Oasis?

  • This is brand new to the festival! We are going to be creating a nature-themed oasis surrounding our professional chalk artists with plants and shade for visitors to observe their progress in a beautiful space. We’re looking for solo/ duo performers to set the mood and make this a welcoming area. Performers in this area should be self-sufficient, upbeat, and welcoming.
  • We will provide shade, 2 chairs, and 1 table. The performer will need to bring their own sound equipment.
  • Performers may sell their merch, put out tasteful signage, and hand out business cards/ flyers, but we do not allow tip jars.
 Your Participation in the Festival Provides the Following Benefits:
  • Outreach opportunities to a community of kids (and their parents) interested in art & performance.
  • A digital festival postcard is available for pre-show promotion.
  • Listing in the Festival Program.
  • Listing on the Entertainment Schedule.
