Spring in Houston is all about going to the rodeo, eating crawfish, listening to live music, and spending time outside enjoying the mild weather before the temperatures start to rise. It's also the perfect time to check out some of the many beautiful parks in the Bayou City, explore Houston's bountiful farmers' markets, hang out at one of the area's local breweries, and spend the weekend at one (or all!) of these family-friendly festivals.

For even more things to do, be sure to take a look at our event calendar and our Spring Fun Guide as well!
