Art in the Park is our annual outdoor hands-on arts festival for kids of all ages and abilities. This inclusive grassroots festival has been around for over 25 years and truly captures the spirit of Austin with its combination of the arts, outdoors, and access for the entire community.
Art in the Park includes
- Art booths
- Outdoor stage with live music and performances
- Family friendly, inclusive
Over 1,000 children and young adults with and without disabilities from AISD and surrounding schools attend this festival each year to enjoy a day of art making! The festival is also open to the public to encourage home-schooled children to attend.

We need organizations to provide a “make and take” art activity (minimal paint, glue, or drying time). Materials need to be provided for at least 300 participants and suitable for all ages.

We also need performers interested in donating their time to provide kid-friendly entertainment during the event. Music, dance, comedy routines, or other interactive pieces would be fun.
