and featuring Houston Public Works Water Works Festival

Full Schedule of Events

12 – 5 pm


Discovery Green Conservancy, in partnership with Citizens’ Environmental Coalition is proud to announce this year’s Earth Day featuring Houston Public Works’ Water Works Festival is all about art!

Artists have a way of helping people see the beauty of the world in a new way. Art has the power to change minds and hearts. This year’s Earth Day will be about using art to engage people and urge them to action. Just as anyone can be an artist, anyone can be an activist. At Earth Day, you can be both!

Houston Public Works’ popular Water Works Festival will also return to Earth Day. As a central environmental issue, the proper care and management of Houston’s water is a topic that affects everyone. The city’s present and future relies on it. 

Expect family-friendly performances, live music, art installations, face painting, crafts and activities. Educational talks, panel discussions, spoken word performances and more will be provided. And, of course, there will be plenty of time to enjoy the water features at Discovery Green.  

Exhibitor applications are now being accepted! 

Sponsorship opportunities are still available, please contact Stephanie Carroll at for more information.  

This will be a zero-waste event. Please plan on bringing your own refillable water bottles and utensils.

Exhibitors will be asked to ensure waste is minimized by only providing reusable or compostable items

Jones Lawn

The Jones Lawn is the largest green space at Discovery Green®, and therefore offers panoramic views of the Park and unobstructed views of the downtown skyline. The Lawn is an exceptional manicured space that can accommodate almost any large gathering. It is the site of major events such as Discovery Green’s festivals or pick-up sports. The Convention District Garage lies directly below the Jones Lawn. From charity galas, festivals or concerts for hundreds or thousands, the Jones Lawn can make any event a memorable and magical occasion.

Thank you to all sponsors and partners!
