Fall is fantastic on Buffalo Bayou 🍂


Buffalo Bayou Partnership has a lineup of outdoor activities for the whole family this fall. All are invited to participate in fun on the water, journey along the trails, learn about the bayou’s ecosystem, and groove to the tunes of some of Houston’s talented DJs and musicians. Fall starts now on Buffalo Bayou!

Dance to the Music

Kick off the season with the first installation of Turntable Tuesdays on September 14. Then, on Saturdays in October, soloists from Houston Grand Opera will serenade boat riders along the waterway with Songs on the Water. In November, come back to The Water Works lawn to jam with BBP on Jazzy Sundays.

Celebrate Nature

For kid-friendly fun, visit Yolanda Black Navarro Buffalo Bend Nature Park on September 25 for a day of peace, love, and bugs at Bugstock. This event will feature crafts, music, giveaways, and even bug tacos to celebrate our region’s ample population of creepy crawlers. In conjunction with this event, BBP will relaunch artist Henry G. Sanchez’s BioArt Bayou-torium, a mobile, bilingual art project that will be available on weekends in October. Later, on October 23, join BBP for one of the season’s biggest outdoor events, KBR Kids Day at the sprawling Tony Marron Park in Houston’s East End neighborhood.
