Volunteers are still needed for the long-awaited 46th Annual Paseo Arts Festival, which is just a few days away! Shifts are available on our website at thepaseo.org for Memorial Day Weekend, Saturday, May 27 and Sunday, May 28 from 10 a.m. - 8 p.m. with live music until 10 p.m., and Monday, May 29 from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Visitors will enjoy over 90 nationally acclaimed visual artists from as far as California and Montana, who fill the Historic Paseo Arts District with original artwork: everything from painting, ceramics and photography to woodworking, glass, sculpture and jewelry.
Voted Best Free Entertainment in Oklahoma Gazette’s 2021 Best of OKC, the festival is also famous for its more than 50 performers such as Uncle Zep, longtime legendary band who has supported the Paseo for years, and new performers including Coldbrew, a rising lo-fi musician based in Stillwater with over 1,069,856 monthly listeners on Spotify. Some of the food and beverage vendors for this year include Tacos El Paso, Let’s Do Greek and Barbells & BBQ. The craft beers Stella Artois, Black Mesa Sellout and Golden Road Mango Cart will be returning this year, being served ice cold on tap and served by the south stage. Karbach Ranch Water and Cerveza and of course our staple Budweiser products at all three beverage tents.
Shudder at the thought of parking? Get shuttled in style on a Village Deluxe Motorcoach, which will run a continuous route from the free parking lot at NW 36th & Walker, and drop you off at the north end of the festival at 30th & Dewey. Shuttle hours are 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. May 27 and 28 and from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. May 29.
The Paseo Arts Festival is the largest annual fundraiser for the Paseo Arts Association. The money raised through beverage and merchandise sales directly supports the mission of the 501(c)3 nonprofit and is used to put on Paseo programs and events provided to the community year-round.
