Come to Ford House for some safe, creative, outdoor family fun.

This weekend, our visitors can “chalk the walk” and use sidewalk chalk to decorate our walking paths — while social distancing.

Every child visiting this weekend (July 25-26) gets a free pack of chalk to use on our paved pathways. And you can bring chalk from home.

Lets create something bright and beautiful together, while we’re social distancing. For your safety, entries are timed and capacities are limited to give everyone enough space to create.

All grounds passes must be purchased in advance. Passes are just $5, or free for members. Children under 6 are free!


Select July 25 or 26 to participate in Chalk the Walk. Entry times and capacities are limited to allow for social distancing.

A grounds pass is required for entry. Everyone must bring a mask with them, and wear it when interacting with others outside their party.

Passes will not be sold at the gate. There are no house tours at this time.

All art must be family-friendly. Please do not chalk the historical stone paths or walls. For your health and safety, please do not share chalk with visitors outside of your own party.
