The Houston Art Car Parade is coming! It is a must-attend event for anyone in Houston, especially if you live at one of our conveniently located Camden communities in or near Downtown Houston. The Houston Art Car Parade is an annual event in Houston, Texas, featuring all types of “rolling art.” The event is held in Downtown Houston near City Hall and Sam Houston Park from April 6 – 16.

The Houston Art Car Parade and the festival is the first and largest Art Car parade in the world. You can see highly modified and artistic cars, bicycles, motorcycles, and other whacky and fun vehicles! The event is about a week and a half of different festivities and art to enjoy, so check out their website where you can view the schedule and purchase tickets.

The entire festival will be spread out into different fun categories:
