Plan Your Weekend This Week

We’ve reached the season of Halloween, pumpkin spice, cooler weather, and autumnal hues. And with plenty of events happening in and around Houston, you’ll have good reason to get out and experience all of the fall events that our city has to offer.

Up your fashion game by spotting new styles at the annual Fashion X Houston event; get spooked at a haunted house or Halloween-themed party; cheer on the Rockets in their season opener against New Orleans; make your way to the Orange Show Gala and raise funds for Houston’s iconic folk sites; browse the works of more than 300 artists from across the country and more at these can’t-miss events in Houston this October.

Events are not ranked, but are listed in chronological order throughout the month of October.
