This past March marked the 40th anniversary of Houston’s long running Bayou City Art Festival. Established and organized by the nonprofit Art Colony Association, the Bayou City Art Festival has brought renowned art and artists to the streets of Houston for the past four decades.

In addition to winning a number of prestigious awards from art critics, most of the proceeds from Bayou City Art Festival go to local charities in the Houston metropolitan area. So, not only are you partaking in wonderful art from around the world, but you’re helping the local community in the process!

You may have missed the festival at Memorial park but don’t fret! The Bayou City Art Festival will be hosting another event in downtown Houston this October. If you wanna help out check out the Bayou City Art Festival Shiftboard site for opportunities come this fall.
