Celebrate Independence Day at the MFAH house museum for American decorative arts and paintings. With its unique blend of the arts and American history, Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens is the perfect place to salute American freedom in style.

Bayou Bend’s annual 4th of July festival offers up an extravaganza of Americana: performers, crafts, activities, refreshments, and more. Enjoy a reading of the Declaration of Independence—followed by a toast with lemonade—twice during the afternoon on the Diana Terrace. Don’t forget to sign the giant copy of the Declaration of Independence before you leave! 

Drop in! Admission is free.
This event takes place rain or shine.


Fourth of July at Bayou Bend is generously supported by Ann and John Bookout.
