Around the World from Home: 2021 Texas Cultural Events & Festivals

Note: Due to COVID-19, events may get postponed or canceled. Please do your research prior to making plans to attend any listed event.

One of my favorite outdoor things to do is attend festivals. Growing up I looked forward to the Houston International Festival every year; the music, the food, and the cultural exposure...there’s usually always something fun to do and cool to see at festivals. Updated monthly, here’s a list of some cool cultural festivals and exhibits taking place here in Texas:
