The 7th Annual Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival returns to the visually stunning setting of The Woodlands Waterway in The Woodlands, just north of Houston, Texas. Produced by The Woodlands Waterway Arts Council, in alliance with community partners, the WWAF raises funds for the Council's non-profit mission to provide regional cultural enrichment opportunities that encourage, support and promote the performing and visual arts.
At the Gate a Single Day Adult Admission is $10, or select a Multi-Day Pass for $15. Children under 12 are admitted free. Hours are Saturday and Sunday 10am - 6pm.
This award winning two-day celebration of the arts attracts art patrons and tourists from across the nation as one of The Woodlands premier attractions. Featuring 200 juried fine art and fine craft artists from 36 different states and 3 countries along with performing arts, delicious food, wine tasting and an "Art of Food" Chef demonstration tent to complement your experience.
The VIP Art Dash Kick-off party was Friday, April 13 at 7 pm at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and is definitely the most unique and exciting event of The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival weekend. This elegant and exclusive evening gives art lovers the chance to mingle with artists from 36 states and as far away as Israel, plus an opportunity to purchase a 60-Second Art Dash ticket and dash for their choice of over 140 original art pieces donated by festival artists.
The evening began with a cocktail reception, where guests enjoyed culinary creations from Marriott chefs while mingling with the artists. Purchase an Art Dash ticket and pre-shop for your selections. Entertainment followed with an opportunity to bid for one of several stunning items, live auctioned by radio celebrity Dana Tyson. Then the excitement of the Dash began: Each ticket holder had 60 seconds to make a dash for the art piece of their choice.
"This is a dynamic and fun event with a little something for everyone," said Festival Director Jenny Wright. "Now in its seventh year, the Arts Festival VIP Kick-off Party has become one of the most coveted special event invitations in The Woodlands."
