The Sidewalk Arts Festival, a signature annual event that began only a couple of years after the founding of SCAD, is the highlight of the weekend, as students and alumni create temporary chalk-art masterpieces of the pavement of scenic Forsyth Park.

Family and Alumni Weekend offers the perfect opportunity for families of current students to visit Savannah and for alumni to reconnect with former classmates at SCAD. The weekend always promises fun, excitement, and a weekend of full of events to bring the SCAD community together.
