There's an impressive number of visitors and creative people in the district. We also like the diverse collaborations, especially with Lamar University. Simply put, this cultural plan makes sense.

TCA Evaluators

On September 5, 2019 the Texas Commission on the Arts (TCA) voted to designate downtown Beaumont a State of Texas Cultural District. Just over 40 cities in the state have received such a distinction since the Texas Legislature created the designation in 2005. This award deems our Downtown District eligible for significant grant funding to enhance our promotion of the arts and tourism.
