‘Chalk It Up SoBo’ Is Back!

UPDATE (May 5) — Due to rainy weather approaching, we have extended Chalk It Up SoBo 3 through Sunday, May 15.

We had such a great time the last two years with South Baltimore residents taking to their sidewalks with an explosion of free-form chalk art that we had to do it again!

The Peninsula Post has teamed up with Key Group of Cummings & Co. Realtors to host Chalk It Up SoBo 3 in May. As in previous years, there will be free chalk and a Prize Drawing for gift cards to your favorite peninsula eateries.

Here’s how to get involved:

WHAT: 3rd Annual South Baltimore Sidewalk Chalk Challenge

WHEN: Friday-Sunday, May 6-15, 2022

WHERE: The sidewalks and stoops of the SoBo peninsula

  • On Sunday, May 1, pick up a box of free chalk courtesy Key Group of Cummings & Co. Realtors from 9 am to 12:30 pm at the Peninsula Post’s “I Love SoBo Day” community celebration at the Baltimore Museum of Industry outdoor pavilion, 1415 Key Highway.
  • Create your chalk art any time between Friday, May 6 and Sunday, May 15.
  • To enter the Prize Drawing, take a photo of your chalk masterpiece and email it along with your name and address to the Peninsula Post (hello@sobopost.org) by 6 pm on May 15.
