After a two-year hiatus, The Lompoc Theatre Project (LTP) will bring back the Lompoc Chalks Festival Oct. 21-23., at the Lompoc Airport.
The free event will will feature local and out-of-town artists, food trucks, crafts and vendor fair, a kids’ corner, and a stage showing live entertainment and dance performances. Returning this year as a featured artist is Delphine Anaya, who travels the country creating chalk art.
Participating dancer groups are Garcia Dance Studio, Live and Love Dance Productions, and the Lompoc High School Dance Company. Too Little Too Late, Skunk Puppy, Whose House is This?, and Radiation Invasion are among the local musicians performing.
Barbara Satterfield, president of the LTP and chair of the Lompoc Chalks event, said she believes relocating the event from the previous downtown area out to the airport has several advantages.
“The airport provides a larger space to easily support the different aspects of the festival,” she said. “It also offers a premium surface for the artists to work on. There is plenty of parking and we will have use of a hanger for seating, entertainment and displays.
“Our goal is to one day have the event at the theatre parking lot, but that won’t happen until we are able to resurface it.”
The 2022 Lompoc Chalks has two major sponsors: Lompoc’s Grocery Outlet, which is sponsoring the Kids’ Corner; and The Santa Barbara Bowl Outreach, sponsoring the entertainment stage.
