Texas has given birth to a great number of nationally renowned and even world famous artists. There are few cities in Texas the size of Conroe where the arts are such a large part of the community. There are art galleries, theatres, a symphony, a choral society along with writers, actors, musicians and more. It’s appropriate to take a couple of days to celebrate them all right here in Conroe.

 

It’s a two-day celebration of the Visual, Performing, Literary, and Cultural Arts...
