Shannon Sutlief Recommends

Watch art being created by portrait painters, graffiti artists, a sculptor using a chain saw and others, or make some art yourself during the Chalk It Up sidewalk chalk competition. There'll also be an outdoor art gallery featuring works from more than 20 local artists and a main stage with performances by American Idol contestant Ron Bultongez, Ballet Folklorico Hispano de Dallas, participants from the Plano International Festival and more. Visit food trucks and other concessionaires for snacks and drinks and browse a marketplace with goods and services being offered by more than 80 businesses.

Plano Artfest features a week of community art programming that culminates in a two-day festival in the Downtown Plano Arts District. There will be live music, contemporary art installations, performances from local arts groups, a makers market of craftsman and artisans, family chalk art, and a kids zone with bounce houses. Brand new for 2018 is the Technicolor Experience which explores image mapping, display work from UTD's PIRL lab, and a panel discussion.
