The Texas Body Paint Festival is easily one of the fastest-growing events for the Coastal Bend that is gaining statewide exposure. Your patronship will help continue its growth into one of the signature events for the State of Texas, while being based right here in the Coastal Bend.
In its first two years (2017 & 2018), the festival was held in downtown Corpus Christi at the House of Rock, BUS and The Bay Jewel. With the capacity crowds and growing participation among artists, it quickly outgrew the space available and has moved to The Waves Resort featuring Schlitterbahn Corpus Christi for its 3rd year. Here's a quick snapshot of the festival's growing popularity.
- 2017 - 10 artists
- 2018 - 29 artists
- 2019 - expected attendance of 30+ artists
- NOTE: Over half of participating artists are from out of town, ranging from locations such as San Antonio, Houston and Austin, thus far.
And, we're attracting world-class artists, several of whom have been featured on TV shows like Face Off (Syfy) and Skin Wars (Netflix). The level of interest has helped stimulate a growing number of body paint artists in our own Coastal Bend community.
