The two-day festival will take place Saturday and Sunday, May 6 and 7, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The event will feature the work of more than 300 artists utilizing a downtown city street as a canvas and more than a half-ton of chalk.

Norman Rockwell’s “Dugout” will be the centerpiece of the 2017 Chalk the Walk Festival in Mount Vernon, May 6 and 7.

The group previously announced that Norman Rockwell’s “Dugout” will be the featured 30’x50′ at the 12th annual Chalk the Walk festival, Iowa’s largest-ever Madonnari Festival.
