The Village at Northstar will be the site of Chalk Tahoe on Labor Day Weekend, Aug. 31 through Sept. 3.

Presented by the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation, the free community event features artists from all over California to transform the cobblestone pathways in the Village at Northstar into vibrant large-scale works of art.

While strolling through the village pathways, attendees can observe the creative minds working of the 500 expected artists who will bring life to the cobblestone walkways, while enjoying shopping, dining, live music and the backdrop of the Sierra Mountain Range.

Chalk Tahoe invites all levels of artists to participate even children have the opportunity to express their artistic side.

The artists are positioned throughout the Village at Northstar in every possible cobble-stoned corner
