Summer may be winding down, but that doesn’t mean the fun is coming to a halt in Texas. Fall is one of the best times of year to visit the Lone Star State, and these three events are ones you don’t want to miss this month.
Houston Hot Sauce Festival
Texans put hot sauce on everything. Taste some of the best (and hottest) hot sauces in the state at the Houston Hot Sauce Festival. In addition to shocking your taste buds, you can kick back and enjoy the festival’s live music, shop the vendor booths, dine on tons of spicy eats, get involved in a number of competitions and enjoy a wide selection of family-friendly activities. The festival will take place on Sept. 19 and 20, at the Stafford Centre in Stafford, Texas, just outside of Houston.
State Fair of Texas
Few fall events can rival the State Fair of Texas. The larger-than-life fair will take place from Sept. 25 to Oct. 18, this year, and it’s going to bigger and better than ever. Cruise down to Texas to see world-renowned musicians, livestock shows, the auto show, rodeo events and other must-see fair entertainment.
