Restored Main Street of an old railroad town on Parents Weekend for the local university, which happens to be rated the 10th best public university in America, Texas A&M
In their own words:
The event will take place on Saturday, April 8th, 2017 from 10am-6pm in the 200 block of W. 26th Street in conjunction with Texas A&M’s Parents Weekend. The event features artists and artisans from across the region selling their handmade creations. There will also be live music, hands on art demonstrations and street performers for your entertainment. Over the last several years, Downtown Bryan has actively fostered arts & culture. This fair continues to build on that by inviting our local artists as well as regional artists to support the rebirth that is occurring there. We hope you can make it out and find a one of a kind treasure of your own. Admission is free and participants are encouraged to spend the afternoon and experience all that Downtown has to offer.
Toasting Our Tenth!

Juried Festival of the Arts
Some really great unknown bands here. This is the kind of country where people gather on the back porch with guitars and swap songs. They are having a cook off. There are a lot of wineries in the area, so don't be surprised of there is some tippling opportunities. Of course there are local breweries. I haven't been here for several years. It promises to be a lot of fun.
I am setting up my full display and then staging a production workshop of mobiles. The aim is to create about a dozen new mobiles. I love to bounce off the creativity an energy of the patrons to our various shows. Montrose has long been a center of creativity and intelligence in Houston culture.
Creativity is alive in Houston and all its surrounding towns and regions. One hub activity can be found in the city of Friendship. This creative energy is collected together and release every fall by the Art Dwellers' Christmas Arts Market. We have been wanting to go down and check this out. There is no better way, since we are not spectators, than to participate. We are excited!
Before the railroads hit Elgin, the settlement went by another name, Hogeye. This annual community party, the Hogeye Festival, brings out families and friends from miles around to celebrate the good ole days while sampling barbecue and being amazed by feats of musicianship offered by the local talent. Better believe that some awesome musicians have buried themselves into the fabric of this community.
