6th Street Events


It is no secret that 6th Street Texas City has become a destination recently for its special events.  As 6th Street was intended to be, it is becoming once again the epicenter for events in Texas City.  

Through collaboration with downtown partners, 6th Street events are becoming a destination for visitors from Galveston County and the Greater Houston Area.
