About the Houston Art Bike Festival
Houston Parks Board & Orange Show Center for Visionary Art are proud to present the Houston Art Bike Parade & Festival. This day-long arts and culture celebration brings together community members and youth programs from across the city as we explore our personal creativity, promote health and wellness, and celebrate the artist in everyone!
Through our partnership with Houston Independent School District (HISD), students from participating schools proudly pedal and accompany their art bikes along the parade route, as families and community members cheer them on from the sidelines.
We welcome you, your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors, to design and create an Art Bike of your own. Anyone and everyone can participate, as we celebrate diversity through artistic interpretations of how the outdoors connect us - embracing our health, our environment, our families, our friends, our civic pride, and our creativity.
Stay tuned for an announcement about our 2024 dates!
For more than 40 years, Houston Parks Board has advocated to improve the lives of all Houstonians through equitable access to green spaces. Our vision is ambitious. We are committed to ensuring that every single person in our city lives close to parks and trails, creating a greater quality of life for all. That vision means our work isn’t close to done. It isn’t easy. But it’s worth it. The initiatives below take important steps in reaching our goal, and we’ll get there together.
