7 Ways to Celebrate 713 Day in Houston

It's Not Hou It's Me

July 13 is no ordinary Saturday this year. The day is 713 Day — Houston’s official unofficial holiday to celebrate itself. Seeing as were Houston’s official unofficial ambassadors, we’re taking this opportunity to guide you through this special day.

Check out one of these 713 Day events

Saint Arnold

Hopefully, the whole town will pick up on the festivities soon! But for now, here are some 713 Day events to keep track of!

  • Saint Arnold Pub Crawl & Concert in Market Square Park. Hit up local bars beginning at 2 pm and catch a concert in the park — we’ll overlook the fact that they booked an Austin band for the free show. Let’s crawl.
  • 713 Day at House of Blues with Jack Freeman & DJ Good Grief. A portion of the proceeds from this show will benefit Multiple Sclerosis Society. Rock out.
  • (713) Art Show & Market at Saint Arnold Brewing Company. Shop art and local goods with a beer in hand and the downtown skyline as your back drop — nothing more Houston than that. Cheers.

Visit a brewery that makes Houston more like Brewston

When Hurricane Harvey decimated the city, Houstonians turned up in droves. Organizations had to turn volunteers away.

Note: There are loads of ways to volunteer, but here are some ones that I’ve personally done and make for good and easy one-day commitments.
