Ice Cream and the Arts in Elk City

Category
Family Fun, Other Events and Visual Arts

Charleston Main Streets will host the 5th Ice Cream and the Arts in the rapidly developing Elk City district of the West Side.  This year's festival highlights chalk art.  The Chalk Goblin from Columbus, Ohio will create a 10' x 10' masterpiece, and local artists will join to create their own 4' x 4' chalk creation.  Additionally, Ice Cream and the arts will feature West Side  face painting, take-away craft stations, a sports zone, and, of course, FREE ice cream. Special "hard" root beer float options are available to attendees over 21 years of age. Participatory art activities include plywood elk cutout paintings and mini masterpieces (small, framed canvas paintings led by artists).

The WV Department of Environmental Protection’s Watershed Improvement Branch and the City of Charleston’s Stormwater Department are sponsoring Ice Cream in the Arts as a single-use plastic FREE event.
