Event Details

Celebrate the 26th Annual Texas Bamboo Festival and the International Day of Peace at Zilker Botanical Garden on Sept 21-22, 2019

The bamboo festival brings bamboo enthusiasts together to share their passion & love of living and working with bamboo! Talk to bamboo experts and learn about growing, controlling, grooming & explore different ways to use bamboo.

In honor of Isamu Taniguchi’s Japanese Garden, dedicated to peace in 1969, we will hang 1,000 cranes, symbolic for the event. Learn to fold origami cranes on beautiful Japanese paper, then take one home and leave one for the garden to keep on display until the end of 2019. Challenge yourself and your children with our Japanese Lantern Scavenger Hunt and discover parts of this beautiful garden you’ve never noticed before. Finish your visit by writing a personal message of peace in the Japanese tea house overlooking the skyline of downtown Austin. Come honor the 50th anniversary of this wonderful section of garden by celebrating with the theme it was constructed by.


The Texas Bamboo Festival is the annual fund raiser for the Texas Bamboo Society Chapter of the American Bamboo Society, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization. Proceeds are used to provide research, information, education, assistance to public bamboo gardens, support for bamboo artists, and to bring new varieties to the multi-state region represented by the Texas Bamboo Society
