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 11am and closes around 5pm, meaning there is ample time to get in front of a good crowd.


Types of vendors that may apply to participate:

  • Food Trucks / Stationary Food Stands

  • Food Carts

  • Artisan Craft Vendors

  • Corporate Activations

All vendors must be self-sufficient, providing their own power source, as well as their own 10'x10' tent with weights, tables and chairs if necessary.




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 hundreds of 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 35 years -- made Houston a cultural force to be reckoned with. It will be zany. It will be hot. Things will get crazy. You'll meet some pretty awesome folks. And, most importantly, you'll find it'll be worth it.
