Sponsors & volunteers needed

We need you! PAPA is a parade for the people by the people. PAPA loves you for dressing up & pitching in, and for your smiles and laughs and musics and bikes and your painted faces! You love PAPA, too, right? This Parade can't happen without creative local businesses sponsoring our event and the roll-up-the-sleeves-support from our community.

Together we've paraded

Since 2006, The Phoenix Annual Parade of the Arts has celebrated the arts and culture that are a vital part of a metropolitan downtown. PAPA unites the arts with the greater community by providing an open to the public, mobile expression of downtown Phoenix life.

For seven years we've created! For seven years, we've paraded! The legend lives on, 2012 return of the PAPA! Welcome to Legend City!
