Bayou Metropolis Artwork Competition returns to downtown Houston this fall

HOUSTON – Calling all art lovers: The Bayou City Arts Festival is back.

After we opted for a virtual celebration last year, the annual arts festival will again take place along Allen Parkway and Sam Houston Park from October 9-10, 2021 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The event features live music, food trucks, two entertainment stages, and art installations. Adults can also enjoy the festival’s vineyard, craft beer garden, and art bar. For children, the festival offers the Active Imagination Zone with hands-on art activities for all ages.

Early bird tickets will soon be available online for $ 15 for adults and $ 5 for children ages 6-12. Children under five are free. Adult ticket prices increase to $ 18 after September 24th.

A limited number of all-day VIP tickets are available that include access to a tented area with light snacks, free beer, wine, and other beverages, and dedicated parking. The VIP zone will also include roving musicians, artistic decor and a phone charging station.


Tickets must be purchased online in advance. No tickets are sold at the box office.

A portion of the ticket proceeds will benefit the festival’s charitable partners, including Artists For Artists, Fresh Arts, Houston SPCA, Warriors In Art, Orange Show For Visionary Art and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

The Bayou City Art Festival is presented by The Art Colony Association, Inc. and is dedicated to supporting artists, celebrating the performing arts, supporting local nonprofits, inspiring young artists, and promoting the powerful influence that art has on the world Houston community has, according to the official website.

“We are grateful to the artists, volunteers, sponsors, non-profit partners and the art community that they have not only supported us in this unprecedented time, but have also believed in our mission for almost 50 years,” wrote the organizers on the website.
