In 2016, Art City Austin moved to the Palmer Event Center (900 Barton Springs Rd) with rave reviews. This city’s original fine arts festival returns to the place of its origin – the site of the old City Colosseum where the festival launched in 1950 as Art Mart.  The new venue allowed for the addition of  “slick art fair” the first of it’s kind in Austin and featured the most exciting galleries in Austin, Houston, San Antonio, and Dallas. Guests to Art City loved the new programming and the the new venue with better parking, lots of shade, indoor restrooms.
