Celebrating its 44th year, the Bayou City Art Festival brings fine art from around the country for a family friendly, three-day outdoor spring festival at Memorial Park.

Organized by the good folks at Art Colony Association, the festival will feature works from more than 400 artists in a wide variety of mediums including clay, glass, metal, leather, wood, mixed media and photography, with a spotlight on featured artist Gregory Arth – best known for his work on canvas.

Students and Kids

Check out the KHOU 11 Student Art Park – new to the festival this year – for 3D site-specific works from local middle school and high school students along with 2D works from the 30 finalists who were selected from the Middle School Art Competition. The Student Art Park will also serve as the center for arts education.

Youngsters will have a blast in the Green Mountain Energy Children’s Creative Zone participating in projects led by the likes of MFAH, Fotofest, City Artworks, Young Audiences of Houston and The University of Houston Clear Lake.

Food Trucks at Bayou City Art Festival

You’re sure to work up an appetite after gazing at fine art all day, so Bernie’s Burger Bus, Koagie Hots, Pho-jita and Happy Endings will be on hand serving dogs, burgers and cheesesteaks. If you’d rather find something sweet and refreshing, Yeti Sunshine will also be there with their famous snowballs.
