Plan Your Weekend This Week

Savor the end of summer with a flurry of concerts, culinary events, theatrical performances, and, lest we forget, the return of football season, all happening throughout the month.

Cheer on the Texans in their preseason home opener against the Lions; see an iconic Broadway musical when the touring cast comes to Houston; head to the Heights while wearing all white for an evening of parties, sales, and music; indulge in a decadent three-course meal at one of the city’s top restaurants for Houston Restaurant Weeks; get an inside look at the Theatre Distract at a free, family-friendly open house and more.

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