Celebrate Diverse Cultures at These September Festivals

Houston has long been understood as a cultural melting pot, with some recent reports that have gone so far as to name it the most diverse city in the nation. With so many vibrant traditions co-existing in one locale, it’s no wonder that opportunities for cultural exploration within Houston’s city limits abound. Whether you’re looking to honor your own heritage, or you’re excited to embrace something new, Houston’s cultural festivals will give you something to celebrate this September. 

Nigeria Cultural Parade and Festival

Firstly, home to a vibrant and growing Nigerian community, Houston’s Nigeria Cultural Parade and Festival aims to create a rich experience of Nigerian traditions through dance, music, and cuisine. The vision guiding the event is one of promoting positivity through cultural awareness. All are welcome, and entry is free with RSVP. The festivities begin at 9:00 a.m. on September 28th at Root Memorial Square Park and continue throughout the afternoon. 

Oktoberfest Houston

This September 27th and 28th, Oktoberfest Houston invites you to celebrate a beer fest with a German twist. Traditional costumes, cuisine, German folk dancing, and the best polka music in all of Texas will be on display. Of course, the festival aims to celebrate the best of German and Texas culture. Additionally, a portion of the beer sales goes to local non-profits, giving you an extra reason to celebrate. 

Viet Cultural Festival

Finally, founded by a group of young Vietnamese-American Houstonians, the Viet Cultural Festival exists to preserve and promote Vietnamese culture. This new Houston festival celebrates Vietnamese culture through entertainment, games, and food. Held at the NRG Center on September 28th, it features a lantern contest, a traditional clothing contest, a Vietnamese chess tournament, and a pho eating contest. The one-day event kicks off at 9:30 a.m. and advance tickets are available.
