HISTORY OF THE PARADE

Houston's largest free cultural event and one of its most iconic celebrations started out nearly four decades ago with humble beginnings. Through the passion and commitment of like-minded artists across the country and the leadership of the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, the Houston Art Car Parade has become a world-wide phenomenon, drawing hundreds of thousands of spectators to witness the awe and splendor of mobile art on wheels.
