  • Texas Renaissance Festival
    For eight weekends in the fall, a troupe of performing fairies, knights, royal personas, and jugging fools set up camp on the 55-acre grounds of the Texas Renaissance Faire. For 38 years, the Festival has re-created the 16th century’s appealing combination of simplicity and grandeur with more than 200 daily performances of live music, acrobatic comedies, and jousting. Actors portraying different levels of society—such as the English court and the pirates—roam the lolling landscape in character while performing comedic and informative bits including “Sound and Fury,” a Shakespearean vaudeville. At noon the Grande Marche parade catapults performers from the Globe Stage for a stroll throughout the park as they advertise their acts in a high-toned procession. On a less precise schedule, craftsmen concoct tangible marvels with skills of glassblowing and blacksmithing, while food purveyors wander the beaten paths or call from their booths, selling fare that ranges from sugar-coated nuts to roasted turkey legs. At close of day, fireworks light the sky to celebrate the festival's victory over time.

  • Lavande
    Using the fresh lavender grown on their own ranch, Craig and Dana Stewart share the aroma therapeutic benefits of their favorite scent with a line of lavender-infused household products. Each handmade bar of soap, jar of culinary rub, and soy candle boasts a generous helping of lavender oil or the raw herb itself, allowing the calming aroma to permeate homes.

  • Human Rights Walk & Festival
    It all started with one Girl Scout. Demme Durrett was just a freshman when she founded the Human Rights Walk & Festival, a gathering that would eventually turn into her Gold Award project and draw more than 2,000 people. At the event's heart is an all-ages and handicapped-accessible walk that gives participants fresh air and an education in the United Nations' Universal Declaration of Human Rights via an outdoor exhibit of artwork, posters, and essays that illustrate the U.N.'s 30 Basic Human Rights. But the walk is only the beginning of this outing, which also features live music, guest speakers sharing inspiring stories, and festival activities for the entire family.

  • Texas Crawfish Festival
    The annual Texas Crawfish and Music Festival draws musicians as well as, per its name, plenty of expert crawfish boilers. They serve their piping hot crawdads to the crowd, along with barbecue, pizza, and other classic festival foods. When patrons aren't dancing or washing down seafood with cold beer, they're shrieking with glee on the grounds' carnival rides, a pleasant alternative to the world's oldest ride, crowd-surfing.

On Thursday night, we will be having an appreciation night for all the staff and faculty members of the surrounding schools. We wanted to give them a special thank you for all the hard work they are doing for our children and community members. What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of? We have partnered up with The Claus Project, a local organization known for collecting coats and clothing for the local school district. Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part? Being around all the Christmas Spirit. Being able to attend a holiday market not only gets me in the holiday cheer but also allows me to see vendors that I would normally not be able to see. Because we have such a wide variety of vendors, I like to see all the unique and creative things they have to offer. Plus, it is fun way to buy my friends and family an unique Christmas gift instead of going to the mall. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? The Northwest Houston Nutcracker Market is featuring independent designers, artists, and crafters. We will have multiple upscale vendors: clothing, home decor, food, jewelry, cosmetics, custom furniture, and much more.

  • Autumn Art & Texas Wine Festival
    The best wine may be the wine that comes to you. More than 10 Texas wineries travel from around the state to showcase their classic vintages and adventurous house blends at the Texas Wine & Art Festival. Surrounded by the beauty of Historic Old Town Spring, winemakers guide visitors through tastings in which they fill cups with wines ranging from bold, dry reds to crisp, sweet whites—all of which are made with Texas grapes. They may also explain their processes, from high-tech, earth-friendly procedures to classic European methods in which grapes are gently massaged until they're ripe. Featured wines are also available for purchase by the bottle. Adding to the artistry of the event, artisan vendors will be on hand to sell gourmet foods, paintings, photography, and handmade wood crafts.
