Downtown Bryan has deep roots in arts, culture, and music, and it’s that time of year when we really show our artistic colors. The 10th Annual Downtown Street and Art Fair is finally here, and this time it is bigger and better than ever! Come take a stroll down W. 26 St between Main St and Parker Ave on Saturday, April 13, between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., and since it’s parents weekend, this is the perfect place to bring the whole gang!
The streets will be filled with fun festivities revolving around the arts with authentic artisan vendors, both local and regional, selling their handmade treasures. There’s no entrance fee, and you’re welcome to bring food and drinks or just stop on by one of the delicious spots along Main. Steamrolling art is back, and there will be a number of artists presenting their masterpieces in the streets.
And what better time to swing dance in the streets than at this fair? After loading your bag full of craft goodies, there will be plenty of street performers to catch your attention. Live music will flood the air throughout the entire day with a new musician kicking off every hour. Beginning at 10 a.m. will be Keith Kallina and the final hour will be Joey McGee and Nick Holloway. For a complete list of the performers and times, check the Downtown Bryan website.
The final and most extravagant aspect of this event is the mural and chalk art by Anat Ronen. Originally from Israel, this Houstonian is a self-taught chalk and mural artist who began her art career a little over a decade ago. She has since skyrocketed to fame and is a much sought after, full-time mural artist. Her sidewalk chalk art will be sure to engage the whole family.
Who knows? Maybe the artist in you will be inspired, or maybe you’ll find that one of a kind treasure you’ve been longing for.
