Onset Chalk-Full-O-Fun Festival

            The 8th annual Onset Chalk-Full-O-Fun Festival will take place on Saturday, August 20. (The rain date is the very next day) from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm on the concrete sidewalk squares around Onset Pier (184 Onset Ave.) and the adjacent Onset Bay Center. This event is cohosted by Onset Bay Association and the Buzzard Bay Coalition’s Onset Bay Center. The 2022 theme is “Our Planet Earth.” This year’s “Feature Artist” will be Amanda Sellars who has won awards at prior events for her outstanding art work.  For a registration fee of $5, artists of all ages and abilities will receive a 36-count box of chalk and can create a design on the pavement. Tables with chalkboards are available for those with limited mobility. Festival goers can vote for their favorite artist. The artist with the most votes will win the “People’s Choice” cash prize.

            At the same time, there will be an artisan craft fair set up on the bluffs of Bay View Park that rises above the beach next to the Onset Bay Center. Items sold by vendors are handcrafted. A number of environmental Organizations will also be set up in the park and will offer information about what they do. From noon to 3:00 pm, Dave Richardson and Jan Schmidt will be at the park gazebo to entertain us with their music. Also from noon to 3:00, Dianne Enzian will offer a children’s art activity in the second level of the Onset Bay Center (enter from the park side doors.)
