If you prefer advice from a real person on real fun-loving Houston events rather than just a calendar full stuff, you’re in the right place. I’ll try to help you avoid 3 types of events:
- Those where you have to park miles away
- The ones where have to stand in line for hours
- Places where rowdy fans can spoil your day
Once you throw out all those events, you pretty much eliminate the lackluster entertainment that ends up costing you way too much while providing very little value in return.
You are still left with plenty of opportunity for exciting, enjoyable and enriching times with friends and family. I put all of the events that happen in H-town into several categories:
- Annual shows
- Special events
- Cultural activities
- Houston Weekend: things to do
Houston Weekend: things to doThere is nothing weak about Houston’s weekly events. I’m not talking about the acts and shows that pass through. This is way cooler stuff to do in Houston that’s happening every weekend. If you are interested in stimulating a harmonious balance within your mind body and spirit, head over to Discovery Green, for a group activity.
Every week you can shape your booty and boost your chakras in the park by joining a fun-loving group of other participants for Yoga, Zumba and other stress eliminating exercises.
Sometimes if the weekends are the only free time n you have, then check out some of these other funtastic things to do in Houston.
- Farmers market
- Second Saturday Buffalo Bayou Boat Rides!
- Recycling Saturdays
- Hermann Park (hike-bike trails-Japanese garden-boat/train rides)
- Plant and Vegetable Gardening Classes
What makes me an expert on events in Houston? I’m glad you asked. It’s that I work here, live here and I've been there and done that, at just about every kind of event happening in the city and a few around the state as well.

There is no culcha gap in this city nor a shortage of representation of the diverse ethnicity in H-town. Early Texas settlers were primarily of Irish, Scottish, German and African American descent.

Many of them love to show off the dance, dress and drama, as well as other exciting and entertaining aspects of their cultural heritage.
