Festivals in Houston

Does anyone know of any festivals, bazaars, or such that are happening in the Houston area in the next coming months possibly?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

        1. Also coming right up this weekend (Sat Sept 22nd) is the PUERTO RICAN & CUBAN FESTIVAL.

          Good food, and also music and arts and crafts for sale.

          They say it is the "Sexiest and Most Anticipated Festival in Texas."

          And who knows... Maybe it is. I might go. Even though I'm pretty sure that doesn't apply to me.

          I haven't been "Sexiest" or particularly "Anticipated" in several decades.

          But it does sound like a lot of fun.

          1. re: Jaymes

            Wow, where's the publicity on that one?? That looks like great fun.

              Downtown, Tranquility Park, great festival location. I just looked it up, here's the info.


          2. One of the biggest, the Texas Renaissance Festival. It's at a little town called Todd Mission, about 40 miles or so north of Houston.

            St Arnolds, a local brewer, is sponsoring several Octoberfest events:

            The Junior League sponsors their annual Holiday Market up in The Woodlands

            Website for the Italian Festival (mentioned above)

            And the Turkish Festival

            Houston is an immigrant city with large populations of almost every ethnic group on the planet. If you look hard enough, you'll undoubtedly find a "festival" for just about everyone.
