Plan Your Weekend This Week

Festival season has arrived, and Houston has no shortage of outdoor fun. Whether you’re looking for live music, food and drink, cultural celebrations, or sporting events, we’ve got you covered on where to go and what to do this May.

Go Greek with a full weekend of traditional performances and authentic cuisine at the ever-popular Houston Greek Festival; belt out the lyrics to “Thank U, Next” when Ariana Grande takes the stage; crack up laughing at a musical spoof of the Broadway hit, Hamilton; stuff your face with loads of splurge-worthy carbs at the Houston Pasta Festival, hang out on the lawn at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion while Dave Matthews sings the night away; and more.

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