THE WOODLANDS, TX -- The Woodlands Arts Council invites the community to experience art in a whole new way in 2024 with expanded offerings and events. For nearly two decades, TWAC has delighted The Woodlands with the nationally recognized The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival. The long-term success of this event has culminated in $1.4 million in charitable giving since TWAC’s founding in 2005. Now in 2024, plans to expand event offerings and programming will bring back the popular April arts festival, a new young artist market, and the first-ever Texas Fine Craft Show.

The 19th Annual The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival returns April 12, 13, & 14, 2024, for three days of artistic discovery along The Woodlands Waterway and in Town Green Park. This longstanding & beloved community event springs up with 200 fine artists from around the world, celebrates the literary arts with Books on The Green, and provides free creative children’s activities at ARTopoly. The popular Art Dash Party presented by The Woodlands Compounding Pharmacy will be held at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott on April 12, 2024.

Tickets go on sale on February 1, 2024! Learn more here:

In the fall, the first-ever Young Makers Market comes to Market Street The Woodlands on September 7, 2024. This fun new event is a mini arts festival for students ages 8-18 to sell their original one-of-a-kind creations. This program will foster learning about entrepreneurship, marketing, and creativity! Young Makers Market will be free for the entire community to come out and support talented young artists.

"Market Street is a longtime supporter of the local arts community," said Market Street Marketing Director Noemi Gonzalez. "We are delighted to host the first Young Makers Market and look forward to the event inspiring creativity in both participants and attendees."

To close out the year, the previously announced Texas Fine Craft Show comes to life at The Woodlands Resort November 1-3, 2024. The Texas Fine Craft Show will welcome art lovers to a curated indoor environment that celebrates the art of fine craft. This intimate show will display handcrafted works from fiber, wood, jewelry, glass, and ceramic juried fine artisans using techniques from around the world. A VIP Preview Party will be held on November 1, 2024, as an exclusive first-look luxury shopping experience, with more planned throughout the weekend, including Q+As and workshops.
