BECOME A SPONSOR

 

Houston Art Car Parade Weekend events would not be possible without generous help from corporate sponsors, foundation grants, in-kind donations and individual giving.

The Houston Art Car Parade is produced by the Orange Show Center for Visionary Art, at 501.c3 non-profit art foundation. As Houston’s largest free public art event, the parade and all Art Car Weekend events would not be possible without generous help from corporate sponsors, foundation grants, in-kind donations and individual giving.

The Houston Art Car Parade and its surrounding events reach close to 300,000 people annually over the course of Art Car Weekend. The parade is a celebration of Houston’s can-do creative spirit.

To request a sponsorship proposal or to discuss becoming an in-kind donor please contact Elaine Dillard at elaine@orangeshow.org or call 713.926.6368

BE A VENDOR

The Houston Art Car Parade draws one of the largest crowds annually - nearly 300,000 people are expected along the parade route! The parade route opens at 10am and closes at 5pm, meaning there is ample time to get in front of a good crowd.

VOLUNTEER

Blink and before you know it, Houston Art Car Parade Weekend will be here. It takes a whole lotta people-power to put on the largest, craziest art car parade in the world!

 

Each year we recruit over 300 volunteers to assist with all types of things, from selling t-shirts to stocking beverage booths, to letting us borrow their truck to haul things!

As a volunteer, you'll participate in an event that has consistently--for the past 32 years-- made Houston a cultural force to be reckoned with. It will be zany. It will be hot. Things will get crazy. And you'll meet some pretty awesome folks. And, most importantly, you'll find it'll be worth it. 

But we here at the Orange Show realize that there's a bunch of other things you could be doing during your free-time: Which is why you'll also get a bad ass t-shirt and an invitation to our fantastic volunteer thank-you party!

If you are interested in being a volunteer with the Houston Art Car Parade, send us a note at volunteer@orangeshow.org and we will add you to our list!
