Now in its 46th year, the Art Colony Association has raised millions of dollars for local nonprofit programs through the festivals. A percentage of the proceeds support local art organizations and nonprofits. The Festivals are funded in part by grants from the City of Houston through the Houston Arts Alliance, corporate sponsorships, private contributions, in-kind support and volunteer assistance. For more information, please visit www.artcolonyassociation.org.


The Art Colony Association, Inc. (ACA) will celebrate 46 years of fine art and giving back to local non-profits as it spotlights more than 300 artists at Bayou City Art Festival in Downtown Houston, Saturday and Sunday, October 14 - 15, 2017, 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.


The sophisticated gallery will transform the streets of Downtown into artistic avenues bursting with colors and culture. As one of the top outdoor fine art festivals in the U.S., the weekend festival will provide guests with the opportunity to see and purchase unique, custom art under the iconic Houston skyline. Bayou City Art Festival Downtown will benefit local non-profits and feature music, food trucks, beverages, entertainment, a Children's Creative Zone and much more.


We are excited to celebrate a weekend of fine art with thousands of supporters, hundreds of artists and our local non-profit partners, said Bridget Anderson, Executive Director of Art Colony Association. Thank you to everyone who has supported the downtown festival and has helped us give back to the Houston community.


Celebrating 46 years since the founding of the Westheimer Art Festival, now known as Bayou City Art Festival, ACA has provided a venue for over 20,000 artists to showcase their work to thousands of art lovers from all over the world. Every year, a new jury selects participating artists, some new and some returning. This helps create a fresh and different festival year after year.
