Lunch Options at Houstonfest

 

There will be no need for lunch options at Houstonfest in 2021 because the contest will be conducted remotely, but this page remains here for future use.

 

In 2020, we had the Sauer Kraut Food Truck (German food), the Berlin Food Factory (German food), and the Kabob Cafe on Wheels (Persian/Mediterranean food)Heights High School also had a concession stand.  We will likely have similar arrangements in future years.
