Special Cancellation Announcement
To our community,
After long, serious consideration, the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art has decided that, unfortunately, Chalktoberfest 2020 scheduled for October 10-11 must be cancelled due to COVID-19.
The state of Georgia and the CDC’s guidelines for holding an event of this magnitude would make it impossible for the Chalktoberfest staff and volunteers to maintain safe social distancing and mask requirements, crowd control enforcement, and other essential health measures that would have to be implemented for the safety of everyone involved.
This decision was not entered into lightly. This festival has become an integral part of MCMA and our mission of building community through art. It saddens us greatly to have to go forward this year without this grand event. However, the safety of our guests, volunteers, and the community at large is our number one priority.
We will look forward to bringing Chalktoberfest to the community again October 9-10, 2021. We sincerely hope you all stay safe and well.
