Join us for our annual celebration of the first day of Spring. Please invite all of your friends as well. Bring your friends to Discovery Green, and let’s celebrate one of the oldest continuous festivals in human history together.

This year, our main entertainer will be none other than Black Cats, who will be performing after the New Year countdown at 6:21 pm. We have also proudly added comedian K-Von to our lineup of performers, who will be performing before the New Year countdown. Houston’s own Deejay Empire will keep us moving the entire day.

We also have some amazing New Year countdown events planned so please plan on being in the park with us before 5 pm. This includes a white dove release to signify peace and unity of all human beings.
