As a Houston native and a nerd, I consider myself lucky to live in a large city that offers me many events of varying sizes that revolve around nerdy topics. I’ve attended quite a few events this year and wanted to showcase a couple of the smaller, fantastic events. I plan to attend more in the future.
Star Wars Art Festival
May 7-8th, I had the opportunity to go to the 5th annual Star Wars Art Festival held at the War’Hous in East Houston. It was my first time attending finally. The set up was great and the War’Hous lent itself nicely as gallery space. The artwork and vendors were fantastic as well. Scroll below and enjoy some images from the event!

In Dreams and Fairy Tales
I adore the East End Gallery and their unique nerdy shows curated by Blue One Thirty and Cynthia Vela. I’m looking forward to their Tim Burton tribute show in October, and plan to take may photos. I attended their In Dreams and Fairy Tales show in May. Please enjoy some of the artist photos from opening night below.
Besides our larger conventions like Comicpalooza or Anime Matsuri, our city is varied with smaller venues like this one or Insomnia Video Game Culture which host great nerdy events. If you ever find yourself in town, please follow these smaller venues and see if any shows are happening. I hope you come to visit Houston and enjoy our nerd culture and food!
If you’re a native Houstonian what are your favorite events? Let me know what you’d like to learn about.
