The festival will also feature regular monthly ArtWalk programming, such as block parties on Chaparral, Lomax, Peoples, and Starr Streets, and ArtWalk park parties at La Retama and Artesian Parks. The parties will host over 100 pop-up vendors, local food trucks, and live music on the streets and inside select businesses.  

Last year, there were over 30,000 attendees over the span of the 2-day festival. Five new murals were painted throughout the Marina Arts District, including a ground mural in Norma Urban Park, a three-story mural of Corpus Christi Native Farrah Fawcett, and a five-story mural honoring our “Birdiest City” designation.  

A full schedule of events will be announced in the coming weeks. All events are weather permitting. Murals produced by the festival are semi-permanent and intended to last for several years.
