Art at Your Feet!

Chalk Art Festival

The streets of downtown come alive this August! Artists from Medicine Hat and beyond use the pavement as their canvas to create breathtaking paintings with nothing but chalk. Internationally renowned street painter Lori Escalera will be overseeing the event as well as participating. Lori has created various public art installations such as community based mural projects and fine art paintings throughout Southern California.

Downtown Medicine Hat is overseen by the City Center Development Agency (CCDA) which encourages future business development, promotes the downtown as a destination shopping and service area, and to help facilitate the sustainability of new and existing business in the downtown area.
