Bellaire Art Festival

We're delighted to be participating in the Bellaire Art Festival for the fourth time!  This fun filled day features many great local artists, craftspeople and food! (that's where we come in!)  We'll have a great selection of our soft-bake home-style cookies, as well as decorated cookies.  Some new items this year include our cinnamon shortbread (ojarascas), Rugelach and Sand Tarts.  Stop by!  You won't be dissappointed!

The Bellaire Art Festival has been in existence since 1991 is produced twice a year, in April in the Spring and in October in the Fall. The event takes has long taken place along scenic Bellaire Boulevard, between Loop 610 and South Rice Avenue, and now has a new home in Bellaire Town Square.
Since its inception, the Bellaire Art Festival has provided a venue for thousands of local artists to display and sell their works - many of whom were just starting their careers as successful artists. Cultivating local talent is one of the many reasons that the Bellaire Art Festival has been so successful and is still around today.

Today, the Bellaire Art Festival is continuing to expand, and we are looking forward to introducing some exciting new programs over the next few years. Currently, between 150-200 painters, potters, jewelry-makers, glass blowers, metalsmiths, clothing designers, and many other types of artists set up their booths in the esplanade.

And make sure you bring the kids too - the Bellaire Art Festival has a fantastic children's area complete with petting zoo, face painting, bouncy castles, children's art, and entertainment for the young ones. If you get hungry, check out the local cuisine scattered around the park - you'll find anything from corndogs to crawfish to kettle korn!
