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.**

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. Updated monthly since 2017, here’s a list of some cool festivals and exhibits 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
