Celebrate Citizenship Month in November!

Festivities celebrate the "Many Faces of Houston", highlighting  the many social and economic contributions and accomplishments of all people who call Houston home.

The City of Houston Department of Neighborhoods and community partners invite Houstonians to celebrate the City's seventh annual Citizenship Month in November. 

A wide variety of volunteer driven events and activities are scheduled throughout the month to celebrate Houston's civic diversity, including performing arts, art exhibits, films, lectures, discussions, children's story times, arts and crafts, festivals and charity walks/runs. These events will take place at city libraries, museums, university campuses, neighborhood centers, green spaces and other locations.
