How to Celebrate the Final Four in Houston This Weekend
After three weeks of busted brackets, upsets, and (yes) basketball, NCAA March Madness finally arrives at NRG Stadium. The Men's Final Four festivities run from Friday, March 31, through Monday, April 3. And, of course, H-Town knows how to roll out the welcome mat. Here's where to celebrate all weekend long.
Final Four Friday
March 31 | NRG Stadium
This free event is just about as close to actual game play action as you can get, with the remaining teams taking the court in an open practice before the NABC All-Star Game hosts top players from around the country.
March 31, April 1 & 3 | NRG Park, Blue Lot
March Madness Music Festival
March 31–APRil 2 | Discovery Green
Megan Thee Stallion, Lil Nas X, Tim McGraw, and Keith Urban headline this trio of concerts in Discovery Green, across the way from the convention center. While tickets are free, registration is required in advance. (Sorry, Megan Thee Stallion fans, her Friday concert is sold out.)
March 31–APRil 3 | George R. Brown Convention Center
Final Four 4-Miler
April 1 | Hermann Square at city hall
Some folks see a major basketball tournament and think, "Ah, the perfect time for a fun run." This one's for you.
