Houston’s signature street art festival is set to make its return to the city this fall.
The Bayou City Art Festival, a colorful two-day celebration of arts, culture, performance, food, philanthropy, and more, is coming back to the streets of Downtown, Houston this autumn on October 9 and 10.
Due to the obvious reasons, the festival opted for a virtual event last year. This fall, however, BCAF will return to its proper form with in-person festivities along Sam Houston Park and Allen Park.
“As one of the top art festivals in the country, the weekend event will provide patrons with the opportunity to personally meet artists, view original works, and purchase artwork from 19 art disciplines including world-class paintings, prints, jewelry, sculptures and more,” the festival wrote in a press release.
In addition to showcasing the artwork of many local artists spanning a multitude of disciplines, including spotlight artist LA’s McKenzie Fisk, the Bayou City Art Festival is set to feature a weekend of live music, installations, food trucks, as well as beverage stations including a wine garden, beer garden and art bar – all with the breathtaking Houston skyline serving as a backdrop.
The festival will also donate a portion of proceeds to its nonprofit partners including: Artists for Artists, Fresh Arts, Houston SPCA, Warriors in Art, Orange Show for Visionary Art, and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
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. After September 24, 2021, adult ticket prices will go up to $18. Festival goers must pre-purchase tickets online before the festival – tickets will not be sold at the gate.
The Bayou City Art Festival takes place from 10 am – 6 pm on October 9 and 10.
