Bayou City Festival Downtown

The Art Colony Association's Bayou City Art Festival Downtown offers not only thousands of artworks but lots of live entertainment. This year, an all-time-high 850 artists from around the world submitted work to the jury; 300 made the cut. The result is a truly world-class selection of artworks, including the bronze Humpty Dumpty sculptures of featured artist Kimber Fiebiger, which are creepy and cute at the same time. Many artists will provide close-up demonstrations and lead kids in crafts and projects. Musicians and dancers are on the festival's entertainment schedule; CORE Performance Company will dance a world premiere. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. City Hall/Hermann Square, 901 Bagby. For information, call 713-521-0133 or visit $10.
