Paseo Arts Festival

The 37th Annual Paseo Arts Festival will take place once again this Memorial Day weekend: May 25-27, 2013. The festival hours will be Saturday & Sunday from 10am to 8:00pm, with music until 11pm. On Monday, the Festival hours are from from 10am to 6pm. The Paseo Arts District is located between NW 30th and Dewey and N.W. 28th and Walker in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

More than 80 visual artists will fill the Historic Paseo Arts District, selling original artwork in a wide variety of media, from painting and photography to wood and jewelry. The Festival also hosts dozens of musicians and other live performers on two stages.The North Stage features acoustic acts and singer-songwriters, from folk and country to bluegrass and much more, while the South Stage spotlights dancers, acts that get a little louder, and some of the Festival's most popular returning acts.

The food court at Paseo Drive and 29th will feature thirteen different food vendors, bringing traditional and not-so-traditional festival treats, both savory and sweet. A children's area, offered at no cost, allows future artists to explore the arts and have fun while creating clay sculptures, spin art, and more. Also for youth, Paper Play Theatre is a hands-on multi arts experience for children of all ages, taking place inside Theatre Upon a StarDanceSwan. The studio opens from 12 - 6pm each day of the festival, inviting children to construct puppets from paper, glitz, light and shadows. See StarDanceSwan's performers dance and sing each child's puppet story. (Paper Play Theatre activities are designed by StarDanceSwan director Lorrie Keller and community arts educators.)

Each year, this event draws more than 60,000 people, who come to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of this event. As the Paseo Arts Association's largest annual fundraiser, the Festival helps to support arts events in the Paseo year-round. We hope that you will join us!

In addition to the visiting food vendors and artists, the district's three restaurants and seventeen working galleries will also be open during festival hours. Many galleries will host special exhibits and new artists during the Festival. There is so much to see and do at the Paseo Arts Festival: you won't want to miss it! While you're here, pick up this year's Festival Commemorative T-shirt, featuring artwork by Paseo artist Gayle L. Curry from In Your Eye Studio and Gallery. Curry is one of Oklahoma's celebrated fine artists and advocate for the arts. Her fine art was commissioned in 2011 for display at Samis Education Center in the OU Complex and has been shown at the State Capitol and other galleries throughout the United States.

Not sure where to park? The Paseo Arts Festival has a shuttle service! Parking will be available to festival visitors at First Christian Church at 36th and Walker. The shuttle will run every 15 minutes on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 9pm and Monday from 10am to 7pm.
