Our Downtown

When you drive into Bay City, you can't help seeing why we are so proud of our downtown.  We worked hard to become a designated Texas Main Street participant so we could preserve our unique community heritage.  Every year, our downtown revitalization and preservation goals help us advance our historic downtown and improve our economic sustainability.  The vision of our Bay City Main Street program is for downtown Bay City to be the pulse of the County: celebrating historic pride, economic vitality and the best of Texas hospitality.  It is easy to appreciate life in a community with such pride in its history and vision for its future.

Community Life

In Bay City we have a vital community life.  It may surprise you to find out that most of our entertainment comes from fund raisers for local organizations such as the library, Boys and Girls Club, Crisis Center, medical centers and others.  We take an active role in our City because we love it and our culture is one of civic pride.  We come from strong, 'can do' people and believe it is our responsibility to support what we want in our community.  But we are also fun-lovers and our events are entertaining as all get out, from galas and dances to rodeos and fish festivals we have something going on all the time.

Calendar of Events

We are a busy city! Check our calendar to see different events going on in our community.

I have lived in Bay City for 7 years after moving from the Deer Park area. We enjoy living in Bay City for many of the city's attributes; from the slow pace, friendly atmosphere to the close proximity to the beach and river. It is easy to be involved in the community's organizations because people are friendly and willing to help each other out. It is such a great welcoming culture from the Houston lifestyle.
