The Broken Arrow Rose Festival is partnering with Chalk It Up! An Art Festival for an amazing full weekend of family friendly fun. Two Festivals in one! The combined festivals will bring chalk art, music, street performers, vendors, kid’s activities, Rose Show, garden groups, and food trucks, plus a kite event! In 2019, the Festival had over 18,000 visitors. We have some new activities planned for even more excitement in 2021!
The Rose Festival is a celebration of Broken Arrow’s return to its history as “The City of Roses” and is a fund-raiser for the future Broken Arrow Rose Garden. Chalk It Up! is a celebration of creativity and fund-raiser for the new Broken Arrow Creative Arts Center. Proceeds from your artist booth fees will go to both endeavors.
Note: Artists will only participate on Friday & Saturday October 1 & 2 in the Rose District.
Sixty (60) artists will be chosen to participate as vendors in the Festival. All entries will be reviewed and booth selections will be made based on the variety of art medium, booth appearance, and quality of product. You may share your booth with other artists.
