To all friends of the museum,

Concerns regarding public health have been at an all-time high, and many large-scale sporting events and conferences have been canceled. These measures are being taken in order to help mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 virus and protect the public.

After careful consideration, we at the Children’s Museum of Brownsville have made the decision to cancel this year’s Chalk Art Festival as a precaution.

As much as we truly enjoy watching dozens of artists fill the park sideways with their works of art, in the interest of the health and safety of our visitors and families of our community, we feel that this is the most beneficial course of action to take at this time.

Our most sincere apologies to those of you who were looking forward to this year’s Chalk Art Fest, whether as participants or spectators.
