Art Car Parade

Houston's largest free public event! Watch as more than 250 rolling works of art turn concrete into a colorful canvas to celebrate the artist in everyone! Mobile masterpieces motor down in and near downtown in the world’s oldest and largest Art Car Parade, in mid April.

Community groups, public and private schools, and professional organizations have become regular participants. Inspired by what they see, spectators create art cars of their own and often become future participants. And as the parade grows, attracting more and more participants, the complexity and quality of the entries increases.

The 2017 Art Car Parade date is April 8.
