The Lyons Avenue Renaissance Festival celebrates the history, art, and culture of Houston's historic 5th Ward. Activities include multiple live-music stages with authentic blues, hip hop, rock, gospel, and other acts, a classic/custom car show, over 100 of Houston’s best soul and Creole food, BBQ and other down-home treats, vendors and service providers! Bring the kiddos to play in our interactive Kids Zone and be a part of Houston’s only egg drop by helicopter! 20,000 goodie-filled, plastic eggs will be airdropped at 3 PM on festival day!! This is a FREE family-friendly event.

We hope that you will come on the journey with us and consider sponsorship this year.  Last year we entertained over 5000  Fifth Ward residents and visitors, dropped 50,000 eggs and featured great local artists and vendors.   The 2022 Festival  will offer all this and much more!!

Because of the festival, the Fifth Ward Community Redevelopment Corporation is able to provide the following annual services and programs:

•Lyons Avenue Renaissance Festival

•New home & commercial construction

•Home purchase & foreclosure prevention counseling and education

•Business Workshops

•Art & cultural events

•And more


Together “We Are the 5th"  We look forward to receiving your commitment. Sponsorship form can be found here: 2022 Sponsorship Form.  Please return the commitment form at your earliest convenience.  Feel free to contact us with any questions.
