The Lyons Avenue Renaissance Festival celebrates the history, art, and culture of Houston's historic 5th Ward. Now approaching its tenth year, the festival remains FREE to the community and continues to celebrate the history, art, culture, and current revitalization of Houston’s 5th Ward. Using the allure of music, dance and other art forms to engage the community, this annual celebration showcases positive changes in the area and new developments that are taking place. Unique to the Festival is Houston’s only egg drop by helicopter!
Art is at the core of the 5th Ward’s economic revitalization because it is an inclusive economic driver that allows everyone to partake in the process of comprehensive redevelopment and revitalization. The 5th Ward Cultural Arts District supports ongoing efforts to revitalize the community and interacts with all of the other economic and community development plans and projects already underway.
We hope that you will come on the journey with us and consider sponsorship this year. Last year we entertained over 4000 Fifth Ward residents and visitors, dropped 50,000 eggs and featured great local artists and vendors.
Because of the festival, the Fifth Ward Community Redevelopment Corporation is able to provide several services and programs annually. Some of those programs include:
Deluxe Theater Programming
The Deluxe Kids
Arts and Cultural Events
Film and Video Productions
"I AM THE 5TH" Campaign
Affordable Housing & Economic Development
Together “We Are the 5th"! We look forward to receiving your commitment.
THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION!
