Bay Day

Bay Day is a one-day celebration presented by the Galveston Bay Foundation and numerous community partners. It is a fun event for families and adults that allows attendees to experience and learn more about Galveston Bay, the largest bay in Texas and one of the most productive estuaries in the country! Bay Day highlights include hands-on, interactive exhibits, activities and demonstrations that emphasize the beauty and value of Galveston Bay.


More than 5,000 Attendees Celebrate Galveston Bay at Bay Day 2014!

People from all over joined GBF staff, exhibitors, and volunteers to celebrate Galveston Bay at the annual Bay Day Festival on April 26 at the Kemah Boardwalk. Attendees visited the interactive exhibits and learned about the importance of Galveston Bay and its diverse resources.

A new and popular feature this year was the Water Wonders Coner, which focused on activities to teach participants about water quality related issues in Galveston Bay. We could not have had a successful Bay Day without the help of our many dedicated volunteers, sponsors and bay enthusiasts.
