City of Magnolia
In addition to the excitement of owning a new luxury home in Houston, Woodforest puts its residents just a few miles from one of the area's most anticipated annual events. Settled in the late 1840s as Mink’s Prairie, the City of Magnolia has grown from its modest beginnings in the lumber industry to a center of commerce that attracts tens of thousands of visitors to the famed Texas Renaissance Festival, one of the nation’s largest and most acclaimed renaissance festivals opens. More than 3,000 costumed characters bring the past alive during the Texas Renaissance Festival, which also features 21 stages and more than 200 performances daily. Visitors are free to shop 300 arts and crafts booths and enjoy international cuisine.
Magnolia also boasts a number of unique retail shops and delectable restaurants, as well as world-class golf. Magnolia has seen a growing population count and is home to one of the state’s fastest-growing school districts.
