It’s also a nationwide movement fueled by shoppers, business owners, and organizers who come together and celebrate the community because they know it matters.
It’s an annual shopping tradition dedicated to supporting small businesses and celebrating communities across the country. Founded by American Express in 2010, Small Business Saturday is celebrated every year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This year, you can get out and support the places you love with the people you love on Nov 25.

The Joe Barnhart Foundation kicks off the first annual BeeFest at the Beeville Art Museum on Saturday, October 14, 2017. A new tradition in Beeville, the indoor/outdoor event will feature local artisans, area non-profits, staged musical performances, interactive crafts, and refreshments available for purchase. All citizens of Beeville and surrounding communities are welcome to join the celebration 10 am to 2 pm.
“Our hope is to bring the community together for an exciting day of visual and performing arts, sparking new collaborations among individuals, non-profits and community organizations,” said Tracy Saucier, Executive Director of the Foundation.
Concurrent with BeeFest, the Beeville Art Museum will host a solo exhibition of Texas landscapes by Austin-area artist, Jeri Salter. Many of the nearly 50 paintings in the show have never before been on public view, and some of Salter’s newer works were inspired by recent visits to private ranches in the Beeville area.
The Beeville Art Museum, created and operated by the Joe Barnhart Foundation, is first and foremost a teaching museum, providing cultural and educational opportunities for the citizens of Bee County and surrounding areas. Cited by Texas Monthly magazine as one of the “great small towns for art,” Beeville, with a population of approximately 13,000, is home to one of the most ambitious art and educational programs in Texas. In addition to exhibiting works by some of Texas’s most renowned artists, as well as selections from private collections and major museums across the state, the Beeville Art Museum provides docent-led tours and art classes for children and adults and workshops for Beeville educators at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Beeville Art Museum, located at 401 E. Fannin, is open to the public 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. Saturday. To contact the museum, please call 361-358-8615 or visit our website at www.bamtexas.org.
