Find the perfect things to do at home in Houston this weekend with our At Home Houston Weekend Guide for Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12, 2020. 

Given instructions from the CDC, City of Houston, and health professionals, all official public gatherings have been effectively canceled or postponed, in order to hopefully slow the spread of Coronavirus/COVID-19.

But with the recent influx of virtual events online, that means there are plenty of community events that do not require in-person attendance that you can take part in from the safety of your own home.

That said, be sure to check back in the coming days, as this list is a work in progress that we’ll be adding to in real-time as new events emerge. If you know of a virtual event, please email us at [email protected] with a link to the official event details.

So kick back indoors, log on, tune in, and check below to find great things happening online at your fingertips in Houston from Thursday, April 2 to Sunday, April 5, 2020.
