Kites, kilts, and reading series await.

By Morgan Kinney March 21, 2019


Thru March 24 | Houston Ballet

Three pieces—including one world premiere work from Justin Peck scored to music by Sufjan Stevens—comprise this program meant to showcase the range of the company's dancers.

Tickets from $35. Wortham Center, 501 Texas Ave. 713-523-6300. More info and ticket at

Gulf Coast Reading Series

March 22 | Bohemeo's

For this month's reading, Gulf Coast trades its recent Lawndale Art Center venue for the more laidback Bohemeo's in the East End. Poet Eloisa Amezcua headlines, with support from Michelle Orsi, Charlotte Wyatt, and LeeAnne Carlson. 

Free. Bohemeo's, 708 Telephone Rd. More info via Facebook.

Sounds of Scotland

March 22 | Smart Financial Centre

Not to be outshone by last weekend's St. Patrick's Day festivities, the pipe band and highland dancers from St. John's School head to Sugar Land for this annual celebration of Scottish history (we wrote about the school's pipe band—an actual elective—in last year's Private School Guide). Kilts not required, but certainly encouraged.

Tickets from $35. Smart Financial Centre, 18111 Lexington Boulevard, Sugar Land. More info and tickets at

Houston Holi 2019

March 23 | Crown Festival Park at Sugar Land

There are plenty of festivals celebrating the return of spring, but this Hindu festival is certainly the most colorful. A ticket will buy you entry into all the colorful paint throwing as well as Indian street food, EDM DJs, and more.

Tickets $12. 18355 Southwest Freeway, Sugar Land. More info via Facebook.

Hermann Park Conservancy Kite Festival

March 24 | Hermann Park

Thousands of colorful kites will take over the skies above Hermann Park for this beloved springtime tradition. Cross your fingers that thunderstorms hold off, and definitely consider taking the train, walking, or riding your bike—parking will likely be difficult.

Free. Hermann Park, 1700 Hermann Dr. More info via Facebook.
