The 19th Annual The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival returned to Town Green Park and along The Woodlands Waterway on April 12, 13, and 14, 2024. Produced by local arts nonprofit The Woodlands Arts Council (TWAC), proceeds from the festival directly benefit microgrant and student art scholarship programs.

As a beloved community event for nearly two decades, art lovers, neighbors, and visitors flock to this nationally ranked celebration of fine art, featuring over 200 artists in mediums like painting, woodworking, sculpture, photography, jewelry, and ceramics, including Featured Artist and painter Regina Lyubovnaya.

Festival attendees not only had the opportunity to enjoy and purchase dazzling art, but also participate in art projects at The Woodlands Children’s Museum’s ARTopoly tent, rock to live music playing on the Stella Artois Mainstage, listen to the storytelling competition and meet authors at Books on The Green with Village Books, watch performances by local performing art and musical groups, indulge in a variety of food and drinks at the Palette Café, and so much more.

On Saturday afternoon, the TWAC staff and board members navigated their way through the festival to present the Best of Show awards and an invitation to artist and professional sculptor Thomas Wargin to return the following year as the 2025 Featured Artist.

And save the date! The 20th The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival returns next April 11, 12 and 13, 2025.
