I’m back with another post featuring food festivals in Houston. In the last food events series, I shared some international food events in Houston, like Oktoberfest and Houston Italian Festival. I’m pretty sure these food events will be back this year 2019. Looking back, Houston had some great foodie events like Houston Restaurant Week and Around The World in 10,000 bites. If you missed those, don’t worry, there are more food and drink festivals coming this year ends. Mark your calendars for these 7 foodie events I’ve gathered here.
