Plans are in full swing for the 9th Annual Nature Fest as both new acts and some old favorites will roar into town for this favorite family festival in Bridgeland!
Animal acts will take the stage throughout the day and offer you a chance to get up close and personal with some amazing creatures. The kids’ zone will have inflatables, a rock wall, train rides and outdoor laser tag. Pony rides and a petting zoo will be a favorite among the wee ones, and kids will have an opportunity to get creative in our arts and craft area.
Keep hunger growls at bay with a variety of food trucks or take a spin in a whimsical butterfly with the Austin Bike Zoo! Take a stroll through our nature exhibitor area and you might catch a glimpse of some of our world-renowned roaming entertainment. You’ll also have a chance to enjoy the lakes in a paddle boat, canoe or kayak, and participate in a fly fishing demonstration.
Entry to Nature Fest and most activities are free, but a few will require tickets to participate. All proceeds raised will be donated to Habitat for Humanity Northwest Harris County.
Nature Fest is sure to be a memorable day for all. Check back for updates and we’ll see you in April!
