Arts & Eats is coming up on May 22 from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m in Baytown’s Town Square. Food trucks, chalk art, arts and crafts vendors, public art – there is so much happening that the festivities actually spill-out of Town Square and into the Downtown Arts District. This is a free, family-friendly event. Here is everything you need to know to make the most out of your event trip!
1. Food Trucks & Other Eateries in Downtown
Food trucks come from all over Houston, park around Town Square, and serve up some of the most scrumptious food! But if food trucks aren’t your thing, right across from the Square is Wazabi Sushi Bar and Sabor of Mexico, two of Baytown’s favorite local eateries. Wazabi has a laidback atmosphere with some of the best Asian-fusion dishes in the area. Next door, Sabor features real fruit ice-cream pops, tons of ice-cream flavors, and delicious savory food with several vegan options! Want a colorful drink or tea, pop down to Baytown Nutrition, located a block from Town Square.
2. Art, Art and more Art!
Around the fountain in Town Square, incredible chalk artists will spend hours perfecting beautiful masterpieces in 5x5-foot squares. A speed painter, a caricature artist, a balloon twister and more will be scattered throughout the area hosting live art demos. The Downtown Arts District is home to Baytown’s famous Umbrella Alley and several beautiful murals as well.
3. We Bring the Beats
Not only are you able to eat yummy food and enjoy beautiful art, but this year’s Arts & Eats Fest is full of entertainment that you don’t want to miss; there will be live music playing throughout the event at the Town Square!
4. Let the kids chalk!
Can’t forget about the kiddos!! A chalking area and chalk will be provided and is completely free for the kids to enjoy. Please remember to keep those chalk masterpieces on the ground ONLY – no walls, pillars, or benches!
