The Orange show consists of three interesting Weekend Attractions in Houston which includes the Beer Can House, The Orange Show Monument and The Houston Art Car Parade. All three attractions are absolutely lovely places to visit. While the Art Car Parade only takes place on one weekend every year you can see the two other attractions all year.

The Orange Show Monument is almost entirely handmade and consists of an outer maze like structure which consists of many things within. There is a museum, a stage, a wishing-well and interestingly even a pond.

Created by Jeff McKissackas a display of Folk art, the whole area is very interesting. The designer who believed in good food and nutrition being extremely important has left this legacy to propagate the same message through his art. The whole place is built entirely out of recycled material. The mosaics, balconies, galleries and piers are a lovely sight to see.

  • This was an AWESOME experience. I am so happy I got to take a tour of it and got a lot of interesting information from our guide! We went as a class from the University of Houston so that was wonderful. This is such a fun and quirky place to see and I recommend it if you get a chance. A great spot for inspiration for any level of art class too! There are a lot of great lessons that can be derived from the interesting history of the iconic Orange Show.

  • It's a lot smaller than I remember as a kid, but still just as quirky. It's like being inside of a Dr. Seuss illustration. It does need some upkeep, but that's how I always remember it. The park next door is really nice. Overall a fun half hour or so, but I really wish it'd be restored to its original glory someday.

  • Fun wonderland of outsider art featuring--you guessed it--the Orange. Jeff McKissack, a postal worker and hobby welder, used concrete, rebar, mosaic tiles, found objects and recycled materials to create this not-to-be-missed Houston gem. You can spend 30 minutes to 2 hours touring the site, which includes a new park at the end of the block featuring a wall of mosaic art and an amphitheater.

  • Very beautiful and interesting place, wonderful for a strange gathering with friends and awesome photos.

  • It is so cool and it has a park next to the right of it. For kids there is a scavenger hunt and you get to see cool art!
