As Houston's premier outdoor fine arts event, the Bayou City Art Festival celebrates both visual and performing arts.
Dancers, musicians, and singers are spotlighted on the Theater District Stage, while visual artists present paintings, drawings, photographs, sculpture, furniture, jewelry, and works in clay, glass, wood, fiber, textiles, and metal throughout Memorial Park.
The kid-focused Creative Zone gives young artists the chance to try their hand at spin art, hat-painting, sand-casting, jewelry-making, drawing, and more. (Kids take home whatever they create.) A wide variety of ethnic restaurants, wine cafes, and beer gardens offer refreshment.
Free METRO shuttle rides from several locations makes transportation to and from the festival site both easy and convenient.
