Houston Flavors Festival

discovery green park, downtown, houston, eventsFoodies have a reason to skip the beach and stay in the city this weekend, as the Flavors Festival comes to Houston.¬† This impressive culinary event brings Houston’s top chefs, restaurants and business owners together at Discovery Green Park for 12 hours of fabulous food and flavors.¬† You can feel good about where your ticket price goes ($9 pre-sale, $15 at the event, under 10 free) as proceeds benefit the Houston Food Bank.

If you have visited Houston you already know what a diverse culinary community inhabits the city.¬† In addition to the amazing BBQ and Mexican/Tex-Mex fare one would expect to find,¬†Houston’s¬†international flair represents ethnic flavors from far and wide: Thai, Vietnamese, Ethiopian, Greek/Italian/Mediterranean, Morroccan, the UK, French, Brazilian…to go on is to always leave someone out!¬† There will¬†also be live music, cooking competitions, eating competitions and more to keep you entertained (and perpetually hungry) all day long.

I especially recommend this event for visitors and newcomers to Houston.  What better way to figure out where you want to eat than a festival where you can try a little bit of everything?  There is nothing worse than going out to dinner, being disappointed in the food, and then having to throw down a lot of money on it.  At the Flavors Festival you can scout the food from a variety of restaurants of every price point and culinary style.  What a treat!
