Due to the coronavirus, many events have been canceled or postponed, and our listings may not reflect those changes. Please check with organizers before making plans.
We invite you to spend your Saturday morning with us online as we take a brief history tour of Midtown Houston, shop til we drop with 40+ area artists, grab some great food from a Midtown area restaurant and sit back and listen to music from some of Htown's best musicians. We can't wait to get our hands dirty with one or ALL of our interesting ArtJams that are sure to spark kindness in our HeART.
