Around the World from Home: 2019 Texas Cultural Events & Festivals

As far back as I can remember one of my favorite outdoor things to do was/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. Here’s a list of some cool festivals taking place in the Houston, Texas area or within driving distance of the Houston, Texas area this year. Some of these events are free and tickets to some of the events that aren’t free can be purchased at a discount on Groupon so be sure to do a little research before you plan your next adventure. #liveItUp
