Shop local artwork and more at Midtown’s free Art in the Park—celebrating the city’s diverse art, food and music—at Baldwin Park on Friday, April 21 and Saturday, April 22, 2023.

Returning to the towering, leafy oaks of Baldwin Park, this year’s Art in the Park celebrates the breadth and depth of Houston’s talented artist community with two days of market shopping, musicians and performers, free DIY art workshops, and some of the city’s tastiest food trucks.

This year’s theme—Let Art inspire HOU!—centers the work of Houston artists that continue to uphold the Bayou City’s reputation as one of the country’s celebrated art cities.

In addition to an eclectic variety of artist and artisan vendors, Art in the Park also showcases local musicians and culinary talents of Houston, as well as offering the community a chance to participate in fun and free, limited-seating ArtJam workshops that can tap into your own inner artist.
