Around the World from Home: 2020 Texas Cultural Events & Festivals

**Note: Due to the worldwide COVID-19 outbreak, some of these events may have been postponed or canceled. Please do your research prior to making plans to attend any of the listed events.**

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. Here’s a list of some cool cultural festivals and exhibits taking place here in Texas.:
