Bayou City Arts Festival Returns for 42nd Season

Mar 11, 2013

The 42nd annual Bayou City Art Festival spring event hits Memorial Park and runs March 22 through March 24.   Each year the Houston Parks and Recreation Department hosts two festivals – one in the spring at Memorial Park and the fall event at Hermann Square and surrounding streets around City Hall downtown.

The biannual festivals have raised more than $2.7 million for arts and service organizations in Houston.  This year all proceeds from the Memorial Park festival will go to 16local charities including Bering Omega Community Services, SNAP and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

The Bayou City Art Festival is a nationally recognized fine arts fair.  Last year 18,000 to 25,000 visitors enjoyed the 3-day event.  Visitors will find a vast selection of art in various mediums, a creative zone with hands-on activities, live entertainment including musical performances, food/beverage vendors and great shopping for unique items.
