Entertainment, Arts & Culture

The Brazos Valley is home to incredible entertainment, arts and culture for all tastes and ages.
Visit College Station and Destination Bryan are fantastic resources for delving even more into what's here.
Plus, with our close proximity to Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, San Antonio and Austin, a quick trip out of town allows you the chance for even more fun.


Whatever your tastebuds desire, the Brazos Valley has an eatery for you. From fine dining to casual comfort, there are a wide range of restaurants to set the mood you want. Texas is known for its barbeque and tex-mex, but any cuisine you are craving, we have it.


Live music is a major part of life here. The Brazos Valley Symphony Orchestra delights audiences and regularly brings in heralded guest musicians. Brazos Valley Chorale brings 100 voices from college students to retirees to present a wide range of music. Texas A&M's Memorial Student Center Opera and Performing Arts Society (MSC OPAS) has offered more than 40 seasons worth of entertainment. That includes major musical acts. Texas A&M's Department of Music Activities features more than 1,300 students in bands, orchestras and choral groups who perform regularly. And musicians from country to jazz to rock and roll to hip hop pack venues across the region with their performances.




From major stage performances through MSC OPAS to community theatre to ballet to youth plays, the Brazos Valley features a tremendous set of theatre groups. Texas A&M and Blinn College offer on-stage entertainment options, and locally-based performers have been wowing audiences for decades. You can learn more about many of them through the Brazos Valley Theatre Collective.



The region's biggest tourist attraction is the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library & Museum on the campus of Texas A&M. People from across the country and around the world visit the Brazos Valley to learn about the life of America's 41st president and his family. The A&M campus has other museums showcasing art and history. Off campus, museums for natural history, children, African American history, art and military history welcome guests year-round.

Historic Downtown Bryan

A Texas cultural district, the downtown portion of Bryan is a mix of retail shops, artwork and nightlife, and it has been growing quickly over the course of the 21st century. Beyond the shops, restaurants and galleries, the Queen Theatre and Palace Theater host movies, music and other events. On the first Friday of each month, Downtown Bryan buzzes with artists and musicians in a free community gathering.

Century Square

Century Square is an exciting mixed-use destination adjacent to Texas A&M University in College Station. The 60-acre development creates a dynamic community center where people congregate from across the region to experience a walkable, urban destination. The Midway leadership team is heavily comprised of former students of Texas A&M who are deeply engaged in the University’s culture and its vision for the growth of the Brazos Valley. The project features premier retail and restaurant establishments, entertainment venues, 60,000 SF of Class-A office, two full-service hotels (The George and Cavalry Court), luxury apartment homes (100 Park), and an activated central gathering space. Century Square is currently in its first phase, with more to come.



Not only is Texas A&M University home to premier research and education opportunities, it also has amazing athletics. The Fightin' Texas Aggies compete in 20 varsity sports. More than 100,000 loud, proud fans pack Kyle Field Saturdays in the fall to watch the most well-known squad at A&M, the football team. The men's and women's basketball teams bring fans out to Reed Arena and sit high in the rankings, with the women winning the national championship in 2011. Aggie Track & Field and Equestrian are each multi-time national championship winners. Soccer, baseball, softball, volleyball, tennis, golf...if you like sports, A&M has them. The action doesn't stop in the summer, though. The Brazos Valley Bombers and Brazos Valley Cavalry FC feature up-and-coming athletes from across the country in baseball and soccer respectively. Area high school students also provide excitement in numerous sports during the year.



If you want to check out the latest movie or a classic film on the big screen, the Brazos Valley has plenty of options. In College Station, the Cinemark theater features 18 screens, and Star Cinema Grill offers meals with major movies. Bryan has the 15-screen Premiere Cinemas which includes IMAX offerings.
