    With tented performance areas throughout downtown Houston, this year's fest features a lineup of hundreds of performances from around the globe. Music acts include big names (Ozomatli, George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic) alongside other talented musicians. Check out the entire schedule of events here. An abundant bounty of global cuisine with everything from Japanese to Jamaican fare, highlighted by vast offerings from this year's spotlighted Caribbean nations, will nourish the hungry crowds. The festival and the performances will proceed rain or shine, so bring an umbrella if it rains, and ride in on an umbrella if it doesn't.

  • Bayou City Art Festival Memorial Park
    Twice a year, a grand convergence happens in Houston — once in downtown Houston and once in Memorial Park. In just one weekend, more than 30,000 attend the Bayou City Art Festival to take in art, live entertainment, and food. The festival has celebrated art and artists this way for more than 40 years, growing to include more than 400 artists across 19 mediums. Highlights include the Middle School Art Competition and the Emerging Artist Program. As judges rank the submissions and grant awards, attendees can also wander the artists' tents and purchase pieces to put in their homes. However, professional artists aren't the only ones who benefit from the Bayou City Art Festival. Established in 1972, the Art Colony Association, the 501(c)(3) non-profit behind the event, donates proceeds to local art non-profits and community service organizations. Some of these reach out at the festival itself, such as within the Green Mountain Energy Children’s Creative Zone, which helps budding artists stretch their imaginations.

  • Wild Goose Chase Atlanta
    Unlike the proverbial wild goose chase, attainable and drinkable treasure waits to be found at the Wild Goose Chase scavenger hunt. As part of celebrated Goose Island brewery's Migration Week, Wild Goose Chase sends beer-loving detectives running, skipping, moseying, and hiccuping across the city on a quest for five Golden Goose Eggs. Clutching smartphones with QR-reader apps, participants set on a trail riddled with riddles, puzzles, challenges, and clues that will lead them to the eggs. Sleuths who've brushed up on their knowledge of Goose Island brewery will find themselves at an advantage, as will those who don costumes?a prize awaits the wearer of the best ensemble. The top five finishers receive rewards, which range from a Chicago weekend trip for two to a Goose Island swag pack. Prizewinner or not, everyone gets to celebrate and partake of some Goose Island's refreshments at the event's conclusion.

  • Red Frog Events
    In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music. The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.
