As one of the top art festivals in the country, the outdoor gallery provides guests with the opportunity to meet 250 artists, view original works, and purchase one-of-a-kind art, prints, jewelry, sculptures, functional art, and more. The festival features two entertainment stages, a food truck park, beverage stations throughout the festival, and art installations. Guests will enjoy Houston’s skyline views while enjoying the festival’s wine garden, craft beer garden, and Art Bar. In the Active Imagination Zone, the festival’s nonprofit partners will host hands-on art activities for all ages.
