“Chalk the Block” with us on Apr. 28 and celebrate Oro Valley Main Streets


The Town of Oro Valley invites you to help Chalk the Block on Saturday, April 28, from 4 to 7 p.m. This event is being held in the Fry’s parking lot at the intersection of Lambert Lane and La Cañada Drive. It is a chance for residents to meet friends, family and neighbors for a fun art event with Main Streets-related activities, games, giveaways, raffle prizes and a food truck area. The first 200 people to attend get free gelato! Whether you’re a casual doodler or a competition-ready artist, grab a piece of sidewalk chalk and join the fun! See full details below. While you’re here, please share your ideas with us about the Oro Valley Main Streets project.

What is Oro Valley Main Streets?
Oro Valley Main Streets is a Town project to promote areas for gathering, dining and shopping that serve as a town center. These walkable and unique areas will enhance OV’s lifestyle and economy. Two local commercial areas are the focus of this project. The first area is at Lambert Lane and La Cañada Drive. The second area is near Oracle Road and First Avenue.
