About Houston Festivals

Aside from the broad selection of activities to do and see in Houston, there are a number of special events and festivals that take place over the course of the year that are really worth viewing if you get the chance. Better yet, choose a few of your favs and plan a trip or vacation around them for an unforgettable time. From music to food to nostalgia, Houston has it all.

There are plenty of food and music festivals that take place throughout the year in Houston. For the finest in food, get into town during the Houston Barbeque Festival. This yearly event is a chance for beginners and pros alike to share their special, secret barbeque sauces and have them critiqued. In addition to the selection of sauces, the meat is just as diverse, so the all-around festival has something for each and every barbeque enthusiast. There are a number of categories of sauces to be judged in, and the winners get bragging privileges for the whole year. The event takes place on the last weekend of June each year.

Remaining in the food vein, there's also a wonderful Southwestern Food Festival that takes place in August each year. This gala showcases the finest in southern foods, from barbeque to Tex-Mex to gourmet delicacies. Visitors to the festival find that the taste and variety of authentic Tex-Mex food is much broader than they've been exposed to outside of the area, and it is truly a culinary experience as well as a cultural one.

For other entertainment festivals, go to the Great Gatsby Festival, Southwest Music Festival, or the Film Festival. The Great Gatsby is a celebration of the lifestyle of the 1920's, which includes dress, music and dancing appropriate to the time. The Southwest Music Festival, as its name implies, is a March showcase of the rising stars in western music, and the band list changes every year. Ultimately, to be on the cutting edge of film and the entertainment industry, you must go to the Houston Film Festival, which showcases films with a southwestern theme, and is rising in recognition yearly.
