Annual Chalking event. This year the theme is Honoring the Scarboro 85 - the brave 85 students who integrated the Oak Ridge schools 66 years ago. Come see the chalk art and check out the food and vendors. 

Jackson Square is the original Townsite of Oak Ridge, and today it is as vibrant as ever. It features quaint and unique shopping, local restaurants, monthly Arts & Antiques in the Square festivals, a weekly farmers market, and first-class live theater and entertainment. Nostalgic photo displays throughout Jackson Square reveal wartime Oak Ridge, when the Square was open 24 hours a day as a gathering spot for off-duty workers in the Secret City.
