White Linen Night it the Heights

The white-hot sultry event of the summer returns August 6, 2011 as Houston Art and Culture presents White Linen Night in the Heights. This neighborhood celebration of art, culture and "citified" Bohemia returns again for its 5th annual installment. The evening promises to be bigger and better than ever as organizers expand the staging areas, featured activities and participants. Over 40,000 Houstonians descended on The Heights last year in their white-linen finest to shop, sip and stroll the neighborhood and celebrate its art community. With crowds expected to be well over 50,000 this year, organizers have focused on expanding the staging areas for the event activities to truly make it a neighborhood-wide celebration.

Visitors to this year's event will once again be treated to a fun atmosphere including local artists, local musicians, and local businesses in The Heights.

Last year's successful White Linen Fashion Show will expand this year to include two staged shows, and local indie favorite Runaway Sun will headline the music line-up this year. Thirsty patrons will delight in the addition of Vinters Own, Houston's Premiere Custom Wine Makers, to host wine tents and serve up their fabulous flavors made locally right in The Heights.

This year, White Linen Night has partnered with The Rose of Houston to help bring a large audience to Breast Cancer causes in the Houston area. There will even be a "Pink Street" full of breast cancer groups with exhibitions and events aimed at breast cancer education.
