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!
