White Linen Night: 5 Things To Know Before You Go

White Linen Nights in the Heights is an adorable little street fair down the historic part of The Heights neighborhood in Houston. It’s patterned off a festival that occurs in the French Quarter in New Orleans every year when people wear their best whites to enjoy the summer and view local art. Whether it’s your first or fifth time visiting this Houston fair here are a few things you should know before you go!

  1. You must wear white. No matter how cute you think that red sundress is, and how much your boyfriend loves it on you. You must wear white. Linen if possible, but not required. Just trying to save you some serious embarrassment here.
  2. It’s free! From window shopping to people watching, the free entertainment is bountiful with live music, art cars, fashion shows,  local artisanal vendors and more.
  3. Shop till you drop. If you do want to give your credit card some exercise, there is plenty of opportunities to do so. The fun starts early  (some places have deals starting at 1 pm!) and lots of local boutiques, antique shops, and artisan booths to check out. Look up some of the attending artists here.
  4. Get drunk. All of the bars have something cool happening like live music, drink specials, beer tastings, food trucks and more! Looking at you Woodrow’s, Cedar Creek, BB’s, Jimmy’s Ice House, and Lucky’s Pub.
  5. Parking. You can park in the neighborhoods nearby–be sure to read the signs in case of towing! Or make things super easy and just cab there (see #4).

Quick Facts:

  • Where: 19th Street (shopping) and White Oak (drinking) in The Heights
  • When: Saturday, August 6, 6-10pm
  • Wear: All of the White
