Art City Austin, Austin’s original outdoor arts festival, returns April 13th-15th, transforming the Palmer Events Center pavilion into an al fresco art block party, featuring over 120 artists from around the country.

In addition to the festival’s outdoor fine art market, visitors will take in large-scale art installations from local artists; music including on-site broadcasting from KGSR on Saturday & live music on Sunday; bites from local food trucks, and arts programming from community partners like Art From The Streets, Latinitas and Austin School for the Performing & Visual Arts. Art City Austin 2018 will host a children’s section with hands-on activities from Arts Amore and the Austin Children’s Theater, encouraging creativity and appreciation of the arts for Austinites of all ages!

On April 13th, the festival’s VIP preview reception will provide guests with an intimate experience, emphasizing interaction with each artist – as well as live music, complimentary food & drinks, a reception welcoming Art Alliance Austin’s new Executive Director, Patricia Shults, participation in the People’s Choice Awards and much more.
