Socialize, shop, and don’t forget to wear white as White Linen Night 2017 takes over across the Greater Heights on Saturday, August 5, 2017.

Back for its 11th year, the official White Linen Night in The Heights is an evening filled with art displays, live music, shopping specials, a party atmosphere, and some of Houston’s best summer people watching.

Official & Unofficial Events on Saturday, August 5, 2017

The big, official event (the party that started is all) is happening on the 200 and 300 blocks of 19th Street. It includes an expanded edition of the monthly First Saturday Arts Market, plus sales, specials, pop-up entertainment, light bites, drinks, and more at just about every retailer on the street, plus a few around the corner.

However, merchants, restaurants and bars around the Greater Heights, particularly along White Oak and in Shady Acres are also throwing their white linen shirts into the ring. You’ll find white clad Houstonians reveling at special events, and private parties, throughout the Heights and beyond.

Here are a few of our favorite events celebrating this Heights neighborhood tradition.

All events are happening on Saturday, August 5, 2017.
