Houston has welcomed festivals centered on cultures from around the world for years now. Thanks to this great, diverse city, Houstonians and Texans alike are able to take pride in where they've come from and where they are now. Korean Festival Houston is taking place next month and it's just another reason why we love Houston so much. A festival with dancing, food, music, and heart is right around the corner and we can hardly wait. 

With how successful the Korean Festival has been in the last 10 years, they're expecting over 40,000 attendees at this year's event. On Saturday, October 5 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., Discovery Green will be taken over for the festival of the year. To make things even better, it's completely free to get into! If you're not already marking your calendars for this then what are you doing?

KFest will have authentic Korean eats and drinks for you to buy and try all day long. With the fest starting at 10 a.m., you'll be eating the breakfast, lunch, and dinner of your dreams. Save your plane ticket to Korea for another time.

The performances are going to be absolutely incredible, just like every year. JC Park was just announced as a co-headliner and our K-Pop loving selves couldn't be more excited. Plan a good outfit because you're going to be dancing nonstop. 

Houston isn't the only city in Texas putting on a groundbreaking event. Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas all have something up their sleeves in the coming months that you're going to want to take a look at. Everything is bigger in Texas.
