La Marque Bayou Fest 2018

Friday, October 19, 2018

Looking for some free family entertainment and fall fun? Bayou Fest is the place to be every October. The two-day festival is held at the 230 acre Highland Bayou Park in La Marque, Texas. Admission and parking are both free to the public. On Friday, the BBQ Cook-off ramps up as teams compete for $10,000 in prize money. On Saturday, kids' activities start at 8:00 a.m. with a fishing tournament, pumpkin carving contest, mutton busting, bounce houses and plenty of room to play. Vendor booths, food trucks and fair food are all on site. A series of concerts kicks off late afternoon with local legend Pee Wee Bowen Band. Lucky 300 get an up-close and personal view under the Miller Lite VIP Experience tent. Stay until 10:00 p.m. to watch the Amoco Federal Credit Union Fireworks Show. Bayou Fest is presented by City of La Marque and Texas City - La Marque Chamber of Commerce. No coolers please. Beverages sold on site.
