Recommended Posts

Hello. Long time lurker here. I am just trying to find out about info on Heights 1st Saturday and I am trying to find out how active the area is during this time every month. If anybody has any info on how well this monthly event is, please post. Also, what time do the crowds, if there are any, start to show up? Trying to go this weekend. Thanks in advance. :)

Hey, forget 1st Saturday!

Sunday is the Heights Festival! It is one of my favorite festivals of the year. It's very family oriented, but singles would find it interesting as well. If you've never been, treat yourself on Sunday. You won't be disappointed!

Hey thanks for the info. Although the Festival on Sunday is an annual event, I probably will not make it. From reading upon both events, I think 1st Saturday is more my vibe. Especially the Yale Street Market. I like the more traditional things like seeing people shop for artwork on stilts under canopies and shopping at one of the many antique boutiques along West 19th. I hate festivals and that is what the thing that takes place on Sunday seems like. The 1st Saturday seems like something exclusive to the Heights and more of a traditional neighborhood event. The New Orleans musicians and artist drew me in too.

I heard it was based on the owner's sons names. Benjaman and Herman. Then they changed that a bit because they thought Ben Hur looked better then Ben Her.

ah okay, thanks - i can't help thinking of charlton heston and chariots every time i pass by!

I went to the festival yesterday. We arrived at noon, just in time for the parade which was quite nice with a very small town feel -- local marching bands, local politicians, local businesses, art cars. etc. We hung around for about two hours looking at all the booths selling crafts, jewelry, etc. There was a kids area and several booths aimed at the kiddies too. It was hot but the sun stayed hidden most of the time and an occasional breeze made it livable. Parking was tight but doable. And a good time was had by all.

We want a full report on the festival, WG!

Oh I had a ball. Nice liberal atmosphere, great shops along W 19th, and the weather couldn't have been any better. Glad I went and will definitely go next year. It was meant for me to go to this thing. I heard from someone at the festival that the day before was ok. I took some pictures of the event and you can catch them on a photo essay I did of Houston's west end on SSP. The pics in the Heights are at the end.
