March 18, 2019

Fort Bend County Precinct 3 Commissioner Andy Meyers will host the sixth annual Fort Bend Arts Festival on Saturday, April 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fort Bend County Library Cinco Ranch Branch.

Always free to the public, the Fort Bend Arts Festival attracts over 5,000 local residents and has become a much loved community event that applauds young writers and artists living in Fort Bend County Precinct 3.

A culmination of the Fort Bend Art Festival Literary & Fine Arts competition, the festival includes a public exhibition of over 300 visual art and essay pieces created by local Fort Bend County Precinct 3 students from Katy ISD, Lamar CISD & Fort Bend ISD.

“It’s a joy to see the impressive work this event showcases year after year,” Meyers said. “To see the caliber of work and how it progresses as the students mature speaks volumes about the wonderful things these citizens of tomorrow will accomplish.”

Festival-goers will also enjoy a Storybook Character Parade through the LaCenterra retail center, more than 100 kid-friendly vendors, local summer camp and activities expo, food trucks, live entertainment, goat yoga, a helicopter fly-over by the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office, laser tag, a gaming truck, free caricatures and more.

The Fort Bend Arts Festival is a collaborative effort of Fort Bend Charities, All about Katy-Katy Summer Fest, Fort Bend County Libraries-Cinco Ranch Branch, and is made possible by dedicated committee members and sponsors. Sponsorship opportunities are available, and offer the perfect opportunity to connect with thousands of residents living in Katy, Cinco Ranch, Fulshear, Richmond and surrounding areas.
