On August 26 & 27, 2022 the Town of Sackville is excited to bring back the popular Sackville Street Chalk Art Festival. Unique in Atlantic Canada, this two-day event will include several artists creating artworks directly on Bridge St in the heart of our downtown.

Alongside the artists there will be multiple creativity zones, art workshops and large-scale chalk activities to enjoy. Throughout the festival there will be musical acts from all across the Tantramar Region and enough chalk for everyone who wants to participate.
