At ArtoCade 2019, there were 100 artfully kooky conveyances arriving from around the nation. Trinidad's historic downtown was filled with a wondrous array of art cars. With that many parade entries ArtoCade follows only Houston as the second largest art car event in the nation with other long established events in major cities like Seattle, San Francisco, Tulsa, Minneapolis and Chattanooga on the list. That is incredible for little old Trinidad.


“If you canʼt drive it, itʼs a float.”


Cars, trucks, bikes, motorcycles, scooters, tractors, ATVs, golf carts and drivable "sculptures" beyond your wildest imagination will astound and amaze you along with thousands of spectators from near and far. We have art cars & vehicles made by "Kids, Quilters, Christians and Convicts." 

What could possibly be more fun than watching these remarkable creations driving down Main Street? How about making your own art vehicle and driving it in the parade? Just go to the "entry form" tab above and see just how easy it can be to not just spectate but participate!
