Beaumont Events

There's always something big happening in Beaumont, Texas! With our well-known fairs and festivals, each change of season offers another must-see event. And when it comes to food & shopping, we get serious. We don't like to brag or anything, but our food is worth planning an event around - which is why we have food festivals for all of our favorite dishes in southeast Texas. Beaumont also has an eclectic mix of museums that celebrate everything from art to energy. Our quirky-ness is portrayed throughout these museums that offer a variety of arts & culture exhibits and events. Parents, the kids will love Free Family Arts Day offered quarterly by the Art Museum of Southeast Texas. Plenty of other events just for kids can be found happening year 'round as well.

In Beaumont, we tend to do things a little bigger than other places in Texas. That's especially true of the performing arts you'll find here. Spread throughout the city are world-class concert halls, theaters and arenas that bring the best in performing arts to Beaumont. These same great facilities, along with nightlife hotspots, also support a host of live entertainment acts that can be enjoyed regularly.

Fan-friendly Beaumont has a true love for the game. From watching the Lamar University Cardinals football team bring home a win, to experiencing the hard-hitting action of the Spindletop Roller Girls roller derby team, there are plenty of sporting events to be found in Beaumont. Beaumont may owe its prosperity to oil, but it's not the only natural resources we're blessed to have. With dense forests, sandy beaches and shallow wetlands, southeast Texas is overflowing with outdoor activities. So what are you waiting for? Get yourself down to Beaumont, and experience Texas with a little something extra!

Beili Liu: Chine

July 31, 2014 – August 31, 2014

Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm. Saturday, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. Sunday, 12:00 noon - 5:00 pm.
Free admission. Suggested donation, $2.

Beili Liu: Chine will include a site-specific installation with materials suspended from the gallery ceiling. Suspended in the center of the gallery space, hundreds of thin, dark iron stakes will form a massive column of sweeping strokes. Liu's work strikes a balance between old-school emotion and progressive innovation. Her ingenious use of materials and process are a blend of Eastern and Western sensibilities.

An Associate Professor in the College of Fine Arts at the University of Texas at Austin, Liu seeks the impossible balance between the light and the dark, the harsh and the gentle, and entanglement and fluidity through her installation. The viewer experiences the installation through alternating moments of silence and sound, and is taken at once by the overwhelming tension, while at the same time drawn towards the subtle lyrical movements and sounds.

Visit Website

Each summer, Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center sponsors summer camps, called EcoRangers, for students entering grades 3 through 9. Some of these camps are science camps taught solely at Shangri La, and some camps are planned in partnership with the Stark Museum of Art. Camps planned with Stark Museum of Art introduce students to a variety of concepts about science and art.

All camps have a low student-to-teacher ratio, which enhances hands-on learning in all environments. Depending on the camp, students may explore a variety of ecosystems, study different critters, complete art projects, and engage in many hands-on activities and active games.

July 1-4: Colors to Dye For (Students entering grades 5 & 6)
Discover the wonders of color and plants. During this camp, students will learn to identify local plants that can be used to make colored dyes. They will collect plants, make dye baths, spin their own wool, and dye the wool in the natural dyes. Students will build looms that they can take home with them, and use these looms to create a weaving project using the hand-spun, dyed wool. Their time will be split between Shangri La Botanical Gardens and the Stark Museum of Art. There will be many outdoor learning experiences (including trips along the bayou and trail hikes) and indoor experiences as campers learn about textiles and create their weaving using inspiration from our Navajo weaving collection.

July 8-11: Wild Patterns & Designs (Students entering grades 3 & 4)
Become a detective as we search for patterns and designs in the wild. Plants and animals use color, texture, patterns and designs in many different ways. We will play exciting games, make and keep a nature journal, and become an artist as we re-create some of these patterns using various art media, like sketching, painting, and textured materials. Campers will enjoy at least one outpost tour on Adams Bayou, take exclusive hikes on trails not open to the public, and the opportunity to stalk our native wildlife (like rabbits, squirrels, and birds).

July 15-18: Scales & Slime: Reptiles & Amphibians (Students entering grades 7, 8 & 9)
Join us for an adventurous discovery of reptiles and amphibians in their native habitats at Shangri La.
Students will create and keep nature journals to record our observations through the week. We will learn to identify at least 7 common reptiles and amphibians, and discover the fun of taxonomy and scientific names. Campers will examine internal and external morphology of the bullfrog through dissection. This camp will include outpost tours on Adams Bayou, exclusive hikes on trails not open to the public, and the chance to "meet" native reptiles and amphibians. An unforgettable experience! 

July 22-25: Living Landscapes (Students entering grades 3 & 4)
Explore the variety of ecosystems of Shangri La! Campers will visit four different ecosystems this week, where they will do experiments, take soil samples, and learn about the plants and animals that depend on the land. They will spend time at the Stark Museum of Art examining how artists portray a variety of landscapes in different media. Campers will be introduced to basic painting techniques and have a chance to create multiple landscape masterpieces throughout the week.

July 29 - August 1: Nature Superheroes (Students entering grades 5 & 6)
Is it a bird? Or a plane? No - it's a Nature Superhero! Join us for 4 days of heroic challenges, like creating the best windmill design to harness wind power. We will uncover the world of geothermal energy and discover how it is used at Shangri La. We will build solar ovens and compost bins that campers will take home. Campers will explore unique ideas for re-using our "garbage" as we repurpose common articles from around the house to make useful items. This camp will include trips along Adams Bayou, and hikes on trails not open to the public.
