Bay Day Festival

Celebrate Galveston Bay during Earth Month at Bay Day 2018!


Saturday, April 21st at  Kemah Boardwalk from 11am – 4pm!

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 annually draws more than 5,000 attendees to experience and learn more about Galveston Bay, the largest bay in Texas and one of the most productive estuaries in the country! Festival highlights include bay-themed arts and crafts, live animal demonstrations and touch tanks, a scavenger hunt, science and marine exhibits, live music, and more. Children and adults will have fun learning about the importance of Galveston Bay in our everyday lives at exhibitor booths including Baytown Nature Center, Houston Zoo, Sea Center Texas, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and much more.

NEW THIS YEAR – Bay Day is taking place in April, making it a signature Earth Month event for the Kemah area. Keep your eyes peeled for new activities and surprises, and tips for promoting a clean and healthy Galveston Bay, one of the largest and most productive estuaries on our planet!

* There is no charge to participate in the Bay Day Festival. Kemah Boardwalk parking fees may apply, as well as other costs associated with using Kemah Boardwalk amusements and restaurants, etc.
