Celebrate the City of Irvine’s 50th anniversary with us by joining the Chalk Art Project this summer. Two Saturdays a month, July through September, the community is invited to gather at various community centers where guests can contribute to a chalk rendition of the Irvine 50th anniversary logo. Connect with your neighbors, spend quality time with family, and enjoy time outdoors at local City parks.
Artwork will be done in an open outdoor area, and photos of each reimagined anniversary logo will be entered into a community contest. Bring a picnic and enjoy a day at the park while helping honor five decades of City history. Pre-registration at yourirvine.org will be required for all events, and individual 20-minute slots are available from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. to ensure all community members have opportunities to be involved. Admission is $5 per family. Registration opens for the July 10 event Monday, June 28.

“As we ease back into summer events and enjoying what we love again, I can think of no better way to celebrate Irvine’s 50th anniversary than by bringing neighbors together and giving families fun opportunities to spend quality time with their children at our parks,” said Irvine Mayor Farrah N. Khan. “We look forward to seeing our City’s creativity on display and hope our residents enjoy these chances to get involved in the community.”
Residents are also encouraged to also participate from home by sharing photos of their chalk logo creations with the City on social media using the hashtag #chalkartirvine.
