Issaquah’s summer tradition, the Chalk Art Festival, is coming to city sidewalks July 17.

The Issaquah Arts Commission invites artists of all ages to transform the sidewalks around the Issaquah Community Center, 301 Rainier Blvd., with their masterpieces from noon to 5 p.m. that day. All the entries will be judged at 5 p.m. with winners being announced at 6 p.m. before the Concert on the Green.

The event is free. Chalk and water will be provided.

Event organizers recommend arriving early to choose a shady sidewalk spot. All space is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
