EVART — Residents in Evart will have a positive opportunity to visit the newly upgraded downtown area as construction comes to a close.

The annual Evart Chalk Art Festival will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 27, and feature sales from local businesses. In the past, the shopping opportunity attracted hundreds of eager customers.

Residents and business owners are encouraged to decorate the sidewalk areas on North Main Street with provided chalk, creating their own masterpiece or simple family-friendly designs.

In addition to the fun, country music from Kari Holmes and the Modern Day Drifters will keep attendees entertained while shopping and enjoying the downtown area.
