The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival Schedule and Event Information

By  | 

Artists, musicians, and performers will soon set up shop and make their debut at The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival on Friday, April 7th through Sunday, April 9th. The festival is ranked one of the top five fine arts festivals in the Nation, with an attendance of 19,000 in 2016.

225 extraordinary artists will be featured representing a broad range of styles and mediums with tents lining The Woodlands Waterway. This year’s featured artist is Terrell Powell, who’s work is inspired by past experiences, dreams and observation of the everyday life. He paints a variety of media including oil, acrylic, and oil pastel as well as cutout metal.

On the first evening (Friday) of the festival, the Art Dash Party will take place at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center starting at 7 p.m. The 60-Second Art Dash has become one of the most eagerly anticipated events of the year that includes an energizing race for participants’ favorite art pieces among the hundreds of works of art donated by VIP Festival Artists.

The festival will also feature workshops for all ages, culinary demonstrations, live music performances, craft beer tents and more. Visitors will be able to enjoy music and entertainment on three performance stages throughout the Festival weekend. A fourth stage will showcase the Art of Food, highlighting local celebrity chefs who demonstrate their culinary skills and offer delicious food tastings.

Artopoly at The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival will be a gathering place for the community to enjoy and participate in hands-on, interactive art projects and demonstrations that encourage festival patrons of all ages to discover art in all its forms. Artopoly will showcase the year-round community and education outreach programs of The Woodlands Arts Council – Because Art Matters, our Charity Partners and other non-profits.
