Bay Day Festival


Bay Day 2019 celebrated all things Galveston Bay!

Visitors to the 2019 Bay Day Festival on May 18 learned all about Galveston Bay, the largest bay in Texas and one of the most productive estuaries in the country. Festival highlights included bay-themed arts and crafts, live animal demonstrations and touch tanks, a Galveston Bay Explorer game, science and marine exhibits and more. Children and adults learned about the importance of Galveston Bay in our everyday lives as they engaged with a variety of local educational exhibits. Check out the 2019 Bay Day photos here!

Join us next year for Bay Day 2020 at the Kemah Boardwalk. Exact date to be determined.
