The Bayou City Art Festival, a colorful two-day celebration of arts, culture, performance, food, philanthropy, and more, is coming back to Sam Houston Park this fall from October 8 to 9.
“The Bayou City Art Festival – Downtown will once again take place in Sam Houston Park, and along Allen Parkway, in beautiful Downtown Houston, Texas on October 8-9, 2022,” the organization writes on its website.
“250 national and international artists, representing 19 disciplines of art, will come together with 20,000+ art-loving patrons, for 2 days full of art, music, food, and entertainment.”
In addition to showcasing the artwork of many local artists spanning a multitude of disciplines, the two-day festival is set to feature a weekend of live music, installations, food trucks, and libations.
Features include a boutique wine garden, culinary arts stage, VIP Hospitality Lounge, community interactive art project, and craft beer garden – all with the breathtaking Houston skyline serving as a backdrop.
The festival will also donate a portion of proceeds to its nonprofit partners including: ArtReach, Fresh Arts, Orange Show For Visionary Art, Second Servings, The Museum of Fine Arts, and The Women’s Fund for Health Education and Resiliency.
“With a long history of providing unique art experiences and art education in Houston, we are honored to again give back directly to the Houston community through our partnerships,” said Kelly Batterson, Executive Director of ACA, in a press release. “The impact that Bayou City Art Festival has on Houston would not be possible without the support from sponsors, artists, and volunteers.”
Early Bird tickets to the festival start at $15 for adults and $5 for children 6 – 12; children under the age of 6 are permitted free entry. General admission tickets are to be redeemed for one festival day. VIP tickets are also available for the price of $70.
Early Bird pricing ends September 23.
The Bayou City Art Festival takes place from 10 am – 6 pm on October 8th and 9th at Sam Houston Park at 1000 Bagby Street and along Allen Parkway.
