The Woodlands
Waterway Arts Festival

APRIL 9-10, 2022

Named one of the top five art festivals in the world, The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival features artwork from nearly 200 juried artists from across the country. Shop for fine art and enjoy live music, local food, beer and wine, and children's art activities for a fun family experience. Set in Town Green Park and along the scenic banks of The Woodlands Waterway, it continues to be one of the premier and most highly anticipated events of its kind in the area.


2022 festival ticket prices will be posted here as soon as they are available for purchase. In previous years, children 12 and under are admitted to the festival free of charge with the purchase of an adult ticket. 

Proceeds from the festival directly fund the year-round community and education outreach programs of Because Art Matters sponsored by The Woodlands Arts Council.


The 2022 Featured Artist is Guilloume Perez-Zapata, a master of “Bolismo” an emotional style using simple forms, textures, and movements to exhibit human feelings from the most complex to the simplest. Guilloume’s canvas is a unique expression of earthly humanism with its joys, afflictions, and fears.

Born in Colombia in 1957, he dedicated himself to art at an early age and completed formal studies at Bellas Artes Institute in 1981. Guilloume works in oils, watercolors, oil pastel, pastel, pencil, and ink as well as creates sculptures in bronze and stone. Guilloume maintains his studio in New Mexico. We are excited to have Guilloume as the 2022 featured artist and to showcase his work!


The 2022 lineup of performances and live music acts will be featured here as it becomes available.
