Downtown Houston’s Sam Houston Park will serve as the location for this celebration of all things Texas. Located at 1000 Bagby St just across Houston City Hall, Sam Houston Park is a lush space of wide open green-ness amid modern monuments and civic institutions.
Downtown Houston is dotted with dozens of parking garages and parking lots as well as ample street parking walking distance from the event site. That said, we encourage all attendees to consider yellow cab, public transit, and designated drivers to assure a safe and fun weekend. We encourage patrons to never drink and drive. NEVER EVER NEVER EVER drink and drive.
Yes! Kids are welcome. Children 10 and under are free. Minors under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
