RAIN OR SHINE
The Paseo Arts District’s 39th annual Paseo Arts Festival will take place May 23 and 24 from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. and May 25 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Visitors will enjoy 86 visual artists, who will fill the Historic Paseo Arts District with original artwork: everything from painting, ceramics and photography to woodworking, sculpture and jewelry.
The Festival is also famous for its dozens of musicians and live performers. New this year is the addition of a third stage. Lovers of the culinary arts rejoice! The food court will feature 12 food vendors with traditional and not-so-traditional festival treats, both savory and sweet. Think gyros, Asian food, decadent desserts and great beers from Mustang Brewery in the new Mustang Brewery Beer Garden. The children's area allows future artists to explore the arts and have fun while creating.
Shudder at the thought of parking? Why not shuttle instead? The Paseo Express, a shuttle bus, will run every 15 minutes to the parking lot at First Christian Church at NW 36th and Walker, making it beyond easy to park and ride. Shuttle hours are 10 a.m. – 9 p.m. May 23 and 24 and from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. May 25.
The Paseo Arts Festival draws more than 60,000 people who come to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of this annual Oklahoma City tradition. It is also the Paseo Arts Association’s largest fundraiser, enabling the Association to offer arts events in the Paseo year-round. Paseo, Oklahoma City’s historic arts district is OKC’s unique arts destination. Dozens of galleries, restaurants and shops stand in distinctive Spanish Mission Revival style buildings, all within walking distance. The Paseo Arts District is located between Northwest 30th and 27th Streets and Walker and Hudson.
