June marks National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, so why not kick things off with a party? That’s just what the Caribbean-American Heritage Foundation of Texas has done annually since 2010 with the Caribbean-American Heritage Month Festival. The event aims to bring awareness to the many contributions made by those of Caribbean ancestry while showcasing the contributions of Caribbean immigrants to the U.S. and Texas. Attractions include vendor booths offering authentic Caribbean fare like jerk chicken and bake and saltfish (sandwiches) and traditional drinks like sorrel and mauby. In addition, Caribbean musicians and dance groups representing such genres as soca, reggae and Latin pop will perform. Don’t miss the kids zone for those who want to make it a family affair; no charge for children under 12.

2 to 10 p.m. Saturday. Jones Plaza, 600 Louisiana. For more information, call 713-783-5779 or visit mycaribbeanfestival.com. $20, children under 12 free.
