Port Aransas, on the Texas Gulf Coast, hosts one incredible festival each April and two fabulous festivals each May. During these times, Port Aransas Texas Bed and Breakfasts fill with artists, songwriters, and fans. Spring is a festive time to visit Port A.
Coming up is the 6th Annual Port Aransas Artfest, on Saturday and Sunday, May 21 and 22, 2011. Artists and crafts people will display their work between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. in the Courtyard of the Historic Tarpon Inn. In addition to a wide variety of art and crafts, there will be food and great live music.
May 23rd is the 28th Annual Songwriter’s Showcase at Robert’s Point Park in Port Aransas. All are invited to stretch out, picnic, and and listen to a variety of original music. The setting couldn’t be nicer, with the Gulf of Mexico lapping at your feet and the stars twinkling overhead.
If it’s too late to plan a trip to Port Aransas this month, think ahead to 2012. Plan an extended vacation in Port Aransas, and take part in the amazing Sandfest in April as well as the Art Festival and Songwriter Festival. Or plan to stay in a Port Aransas Texas Bed and Breakfast this summer, when the best activity will be lounging on the beach, swimming in the Gulf, fishing, and eating your catch.
