October Events and Festivals

This is a guide to the Houston events and festivals that take place this month. Add these to your calendar of things to do.

Asian American Festival

Another festival celebrated at the Miller Outdoor Theatre, this one --surprise-- celebrates the Asian culture. Another family-friendly outing, for sure.

Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival

One of my personal favorites, the CCCF is a three-day-long party that features tons of live music and loads of fried food. One year that we went, we saw a man wrestle an alligator. That’s no joke. How can you not enjoy a festival like that?

The Komen-Houston Race for the Cure

This is a fundraiser walk aimed at raising money to aid in searching for the cure for breast cancer. It is sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Texas Renaissance Festival

Another staple in Houston’s cultural scene, the Texas Renaissance Festival aims to recreate the 16th century of an English village. I feel like I should make some type of joke about wenches, but I’d rather not receive a ton of hateful emails.

The Wings Over Houston Air Show

My boys go nutsos for this one. This event features the US Navy’s Blue Angels, a skilled team of flyboys. You can also some of the most powerful aerial machines on Earth. Definitely a winner for the father/son day out.

The Original Greek Festival

Each first weekend in October, the Greek community gathers to celebrate the, umm, Greek community. It’s a small-ish festival, but it’s usually pretty fun for a few hours.

Texian Market Days

Want to celebrate the scenes of Texas? (I’m not sure exactly what that means, but that’s how the Texian Market Days event is billed.) Then head over to the Texian Market Days event. There will be more than 1,000 costumed interpreters, if that helps sort things out for you any.
