Trinidad, Colorado presents the wacky and wondrous ARTOCADE, an Art Car festival and parade.
On the weekend of September 12 - 13 - 14, 2014, our historic architecture will proudly preside over a series of events focused on an explosion of creative energy in the form of artfully enhanced vehicles.
“If you canʼt drive it, itʼs a float.”
Cars, motorcycles, bikes, trikes, scooters, tractors, golf carts and rolling conveyances beyond your wildest imagination will roam our brick streets. There will be a grand autocade/parade along with related art exhibitions, special events, and competitions throughout town.
Come one and all to the largest, funnest, silliest, wonderfullest art event ever to happen in southern Colorado or northern New Mexico.
A series of events that will bring mouth-agape awe to kids of all ages. Art and car lovers alike will be blown/honked away!
The photos on this page are a tantalizing taste of the work created by well-known "cartists." They may or may not may appear at ArtoCade 2014. We are hearing from art car creators and owners around the country. Stay in touch!
