Chalk the Block

Irving's Chalk the Block spelled out on a sidewalk in chalkHelp decorate Irving neighborhoods and businesses with bright colors and fun summer artwork. The first weekend of summer is Irving Chalk the Block!

On June 20 and 21, let’s celebrate summer with citywide splashes of color and fun chalk drawings on every driveway and sidewalk throughout the city. Residents, businesses, churches and anyone who enjoys summer, art and fun are invited to step outside and, in chalk, draw summer scenes on driveways and/or sidewalks. Drawings could include any images related to summer, and be sure to use your imagination!

Please be safe when chalking:

  • Stay out of the street and parking lots
  • Maintain social distancing
  • Do not enter private property

Once the drawing is complete, share it with the city for all to see! Post a picture of the drawing to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag @TheCityofIrving and use the hashtag #IrvingChalktheBlock.

Show off your talent and your neighborhood! Be colorful, creative and have fun!
