Arts & Culture
The Woodlands art and culture scene is one of the main reasons visitors travel from all across the globe to spend their vacations here. The Woodlands is home to one of the largest and most dynamic collections of public art in Texas, including more than 100 pieces comprised of benches, sculptures, mosaics and murals.
The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands hosts some of the biggest musical names touring through Texas like Jimmy Buffet, Gwen Stefani, and The Dave Matthews Band. The Pavilion is the summer home of the Houston Symphony and the “home away from home” for the Houston Ballet.
Art lovers cannot miss The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, an annual celebration of the visual, performing and culinary arts each April. Set along the banks of The Woodlands Waterway in the heart of The Woodlands Art District, The Woodlands Art Festival is a juried show and features more than 200 artists as well as superior culinary experiences, a gourmet specialty product area, educational art activities for children and adults, live performances, and special exhibitions.
