East End Weekend Events Galore: Sunday Streets, Watershed Market, and Tamale Festival Houston
There are no shortage of events this weekend going on in the East End and we wanted to make sure you were aware of some of the highlights.
Sunday Streets – East End/Fifth Ward Edition
Sunday, December 7 from 12–4pm
On the first Sunday of December, a street in the East End/Fifth Ward community will be opened to pedestrians and cyclists. The route runs east on Navigation Blvd and then north on York and Hirsch, between Jenson and Clinton. View the Map »
With no cars on the road, you’ll be able to enjoy these streets for walking, running, dancing or cycling with friends and family.
Sunday Streets Houston is not a street festival. It is a family-friendly opportunity to be physically active and enjoy active transportation, as well as connect with neighbors in your community.

Watershed Holiday Market
Saturday, December 6 from 10am–4pm
2322 Polk St.
The goal of Watershed Market is to grow organically to become a permanent destination in Houston, giving patrons easy access to GLASIR© approved vendors offering Green, Local, Adaptive, Sustainable, Innovative and Reuse products and services.
Watershed Market will be a place where you can spend the day shopping, strolling, grabbing a local drink, and seeing live music in one location. The Market will showcase local food, artisans, and innovative product makers of all kinds.
With Houston well on it’s way to becoming the 3rd largest city in the United States, Watershed Market aims to establish a permanent, regionally-sourced marketplace where people can meet up and experience Houston’s unique culture.
