Walk with fellow artists, friends, neighbors, and community groups

as the parade marches down Georgia Ave and around the Wheaton Triangle

to a community arts festival near Wheaton Veterans Urban Park. It's FREE!

There will be floats but no cars, just people pulling, pushing, carrying, wearing and performing their art.


Join the parade or come and watch us strut our stuff. Enjoy the Arts Festival. More than 50 local artists will have their artwork on display and for sale. Enjoy live performances of music and dance, art-making demonstrations, family art and sensory inclusion activities, and a Food Court featuring some of Wheaton's favorite restaurants.

Rain or shine, it's a good time!

We're bringing our community together with art!  Share your experience on Social Media #WAP2020.

This page is under construction while planning for 2020 is underway. The poster contest ended on February 28 and we will announce the winner and publish the design soon after the quarantine has been lifted. The maps below give you a rough idea of the new parade route and festival layout for 2020. If you want to exhibit and sell your art, register early to be sure of having a tent. If you have questions contact us at info@wheatonartsparade.org
