After a two-year hiatus, The Lompok Theater Project (LTP) will bring back the Lompok Chalk Festival on 21–23 October at Lompok Airport.
The free event will feature a stage showcasing local and out-of-town artists, food trucks, a craft and vendor fair, a children’s corner, and 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 Lompoc High School Dance Company. Too Little Too Late, Skunk Puppy, Whose Home Is It?, and Radiation Invasion are among local musicians.
Barbara Satterfield, president of the LTP and the president of the Lompoc Chocs event, said she believes there are many benefits to moving the event from the previous downtown area to the airport.
“The airport provides a large space to easily support the various aspects of the festival,” she said. “It also provides a premium surface for artists to work on. There is plenty of parking and we will have access to a hangar for seating, entertainment and performances.
“Our goal is to have the program in the theater parking lot one day, but that won’t happen until we start it again.”
2022 Lompok Chalk has two major sponsors: Lompok’s grocery outlet, which is sponsoring Kids Corner; and Santa Barbara Bowl Outreach, the entertainment platform sponsors.
