October 18, Saturday - South Shore Dockside Food & Wine Festival

The League City Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the 7th Anniversary South Shore Dockside Food & Wine Festival. This annual celebration is scheduled for Saturday, October 18, 2008 beginning at 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. The only event of its kind on the Texas gulf coast features a first class atmosphere for all guests to experience.

Four themed pavilions feature wines from all over the globe while ongoing live entertainment sets the mood for a spectacular festival. For those who prefer something different, our Here's the Beer Pavilion is sure to quench your thirst. Additionally, guests will be treated to distinctive cuisine from popular local eateries, culinary demonstrations, high end artists and exhibitors, and automobile, boat and yacht displays. Don't forget about the traditional grape stomp competition, which is always a crowd favorite.

Just 20 minutes south of downtown Houston, the Festival is held in the Bay Area Houston region located midway between Houston and Galveston at the prestigious South Shore Harbour Resort & Conference Center Marina in League City. Deemed the "Boating Capital of Texas," the focal point of Bay Area Houston is Clear Lake, a 2,000-acre inlet of Galveston Bay and the third-largest pleasure boat basin in the United States.

The South Shore Dockside Food & Wine Festival benefits the programs of the League City Chamber of Commerce. The mission of the League City Chamber of Commerce is to promote the League City area's economic growth through partnerships between community, business and government.

9th Annual Houston Hot Sauce Festival
September 20 & 21, 2008
Sat. 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. / Sun. Noon – 5 p.m.
Houston Farm and Ranch Club
(Just off Hwy 6 – 1.5 miles North of I10)

The “Biggest Bubba / Crazy Texan’s” hottest hot sauce buying, rockin,’ dustiest, festival on the Gulf Coast is in the works. The 9th Annual Houston Hot Sauce Festival will be held the 3rd weekend in September 2008. Exhibitor information will be available in January. As always, returning vendors receive first right of refusal for “same space” before we start moving vendors around and adding new. The deadline for same space will be March 1st . We have about a 95% return rate… For new vendors – this isn’t a bad thing. We always have some vendors who just want to move space, some are just slower getting there money in. And, always, 1 or 2 that just disappear. There’s always some juggling. We’re working on Sponsors and such right now. For information on booth space or Sponsorship please email
