Get Ready to Blast Off at This Second Saturday Event, Put Together in Honor of Apollo 11

Honor Apollo 11 with a fun-filled night of art and culture! Sawyer Yards can’t wait to join Houstonians in celebrating the Moon landing’s historic 50th anniversary on Saturday, July 13th. During a special “Out of This World” Second Saturday, Sawyer Yards will display specially themed exhibits, as well as the regular attractions you’ve become used to seeing during Second Saturday events. Don’t miss it!

On the Second Saturday of every month, Sawyer Yards invites the public to tour more than 350 open art studios, explore an outdoor makers market and grab a craft brew with friends and family. July’s Second Saturday will be out of this world with a variety of space-themed fitness offerings, craft beer and interactive art experiences throughout the campus. From 6:00 to 10:00 p.m., Sawyer Yards will host a plethora of activities in conjunction with the outdoor Market at Sawyer Yards and Second Saturday Open Studios.

Come relive the experience of being in space with projections of the solar system in the old Silos train shed and clips of the moon landing shown on the historic Riviana Rice silos. Additionally, attendees can enjoy a specialty craft beer and space-themed movies at Holler Brewing Co. or grab friends for space-themed photo opportunities in select buildings.

Sawyer Yards is a creative community thriving in the heart of Houston’s historic First Ward, surrounded by an active rail yard where 20+ trains change the landscape each day. Against this backdrop, industrial warehouses transformed into built-for-purpose studios are now home to one of the largest working artist communities in the country. This exceptional art community is complemented by creative businesses, public galleries, unique dining and entertainment venues—all brought to life through an active schedule of special events.

Grab your friends and head to Sawyer Yards on Saturday, July 13th for an interstellar adventure! Admission to Second Saturday is free, and all are welcome to attend. To learn more about Sawyer Yards, visit www.sawyeryards.com.
