Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival

In response to growing concerns regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and Montgomery and Harris County Declarations of Local Disaster, two major multi-day events in The Woodlands have postponed spring dates and are now looking to the fall — Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Texas and The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival.

The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, which has been ranked among the top 5 of all United States arts festivals, was scheduled for April 3-5, 2020 and brings patrons and artists from all over the world. The Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Texas was scheduled for Saturday, April 25, 2020 and the event was sold out with participants, vendors and volunteers from 25+ countries and all 50 states.

“In the spirit of public welfare and public safety, these two organizations understand these are very difficult decisions, but decisions to place the value of human life greater than the event,” said Township Chairman Gordy Bunch.

Officials with Visit The Woodlands and the Township are working through various alternatives, with both groups looking at weeks in September, October and November. Once these dates are confirmed, news announcements will follow.

On Thursday, March 12, 2020, The Woodlands Township cancelled or postponed all Township-sponsored events from March 12, 2020, through April 12, 2020 (Easter Sunday). This decision was made in consultation with Montgomery and Harris County Public Health officials.
