The Powerhouse Art Studio is a Free, public studio space where we share parade art techniques and you can take part in building the parade.

Stop by the Powerhouse! In the weeks leading up to the parade we’ll be open for the public to stop by, get messy, and join in the parade preparations.

  • Saturday, June 10th: 1 pm – 3 pm
  • Learn hand-felting with artist Sofia Babaeva and learn about her McKay Grant winning ensemble Yasno Leto (Russian: Radiant Summer)
  • Get a guided tour of the FAC’s Powerhouse community art studio
  • FREE to the public – hospitality provided – donations accepted for the Fremont Arts Council

What’s happening at the Powerhouse?

The floats have arrived!

Ensemble registrations are rolling in!

Looking for inspiration for your ensemble, or want to join one in progress? We have  giant puppets, drums, dancers, fairies, kinetic sculptures, tubas…what can you bring to the streets? Keep checking the parade line up to see what’s new and who needs volunteers!  Or, just drop by the powerhouse and see for yourself.

The Powerhouse is Open!
