The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival is known nationally as one of the top arts festivals in the country. And for good reason! The festival includes artwork from over 200 juried artists from across North America, even featuring artists from Israel and Canada. 

Join us in The Woodlands April 4-5, 2020 for this highly anticipated two-day event. The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival is more than art, it’s music, performing arts and a great all-around experience.

Meet the Artists
