ART / WORDS / NOISE


Come for visual art, spoken word and musical performances throughout the day brought to you by some of Houston's most respected organizations and talented individuals.

This family-oriented outdoor festival is brimming with live performances, films, artists, food trucks, and word-smiths and takes place on the beautifully austere 30 acre Menil campus.

Soak in the outdoors and lounge around the campus or visit the remarkable art works in Rothko Chapel and the Menil Collection. Listen to readings from some of Houston's best literary talent or attend a panel on food writing or how to get your first book published. It's all for you. And it's all free.

ART/WORDS/NOISE

Usually attracting around 2000 visitors throughout the course of the day, Menil Fest is a concerted effort among Houston's thriving community arts organizations, such as Da Camera, SWAMP, InPrint, Houston Center for Photography, Gulf Coast: A Journal of Literature and Fine Arts, The Council of Literary magazines and Presses and many, many others.

Take note, the festival may have undergone a name change (it was formerly called The Menil Community Arts and Houston Indie Book Festival), but the mission is still the same: We want to give you a fun-filled day of Art, Words and Noise!
