Celebrate Galveston Bay at Bay Day Festival!

Join us for free family fun at Galveston Bay Foundation’s Bay Day Festival, a one-day celebration of Galveston Bay! You will learn all 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 and more. Children and adults will learn about the importance of Galveston Bay in our everyday lives as they engage with a variety of local educational exhibits.
