Things To Do Houston Events May 2023

Looking for fun things to do in Houston for the month of May 2023?! Look no further! Each month I curate an extensive list of activities, events, and fun AF stuff to do around the Houston (& suburbs!) area. The list is organized by day/time and includes the venue. Boredom solved!


Bored? Sick of doing stuff alone? Need some new friends? Reclaim your social life as an adult by joining Houston's fastest growing social group "Hard To Make Friends As An Adult" hosted by yours truly (@meetwithmacey!). Join here and go premium for $20! Premium memberships are good for a year and give you access to our exclusive Whatsapp/Instagram group chats, Slack Channel, and premium events.


*Please note, all events are subject to change/cancellation. I am not some promo girl and I'm not affiliated with any venue/event unless event includes "My Meetup Group!" Some events may require tickets. Please check each venue to find out more. Most events are 21+ & this calendar caters to adult content (Just a heads up before you bring your ten year old to a liquor Easter egg hunt LOL).
