Chalk art festival and other events announced for Old Town North

A group of community organizations for Old Town North have worked in partnership to plan a suite of events next month and beyond for the neighborhood.

First up is Taste of Old Town North, an annual festival spotlighting local restaurants in the area.

“A neighborhood and city-wide favorite, this annual event held in Montgomery Park, 901 N. Royal Street, features booths and tastings from area restaurants, music, and fitness demonstrations,” the Old Town North Alliance said in an email. “This year’s event is planned for Thursday, September 15 in the afternoon.”

The Old Town North Alliance also said there will be recurring events throughout the month.

“The Old Town North Farmers Market takes place each Thursday from 3 to 7 pm, and each Sunday from 10 to 2 pm on the parking surface at Montgomery Park, 901 N. Royal Street,” the Old Town North Alliance said. “The market features 8 to 10 vendors offering a variety of food and artisan products. A compost station is available on Sundays.”

Additionally, a happy hour event is scheduled for Fridays at the Canal Center office complex (44 Canal Center Plaza).

“On many Fridays beginning at 4 pm, the Canal Center office complex on the river offers happy hours with live and DJ music, beer and food trucks, children’s games, and more,” the Old Town North Alliance said. “Enjoy the beautiful setting and have a lovely Friday!”

One of the new events is a “Chalk Walk” next month.

“This is a new event focused on Old Town North’s status as Alexandria’s Arts and Cultural District,” the Old Town North Alliance said. “Artists will be stationed throughout the neighborhood on 10 by 10 spaces and will create new works of art in chalk. Attendees will be invited to stroll by each site and admire the artists at work or the finished work. There will also be a kid’s station in Montgomery Park. Food and drink will be available for purchase at Canal Center on the plaza, and several artists will be in that location as well.”

A full list of events is available online.
