With farm cooperatives, daily farmers markets, and over 20 community gardens throughout the city, we will show you where to fill up your vegetable crisper. Plus, we’ll show you where you can pick your own tomatoes, blueberries, flowers and more.
Scoop: Did you know we have a dairy warehouse filled with artisan cheeses, right in the middle of town?
Tastings are open to the public and every Friday and Saturday, pick up the map and learn more!

You have options in Houston. On Sundays you can visit the Craft Beer Garden and chill out to some local tunes. Or, any day of the week but Sunday you can stop by our hometown microbrewery, St. Arnold's for a tour and a sip! Karbach and Buffalo Bayou Brewing have cornered their share of the local brewing market recently!
Scoop:Houston is now one of the top coffee ports in the world!
You might get the chance to meet one of the Head roasters in town who delivers to his closer customers on his bicycle.

When & Where
Bayou City Outdoors
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Typically most BCO events are for adults. But, we do love kids. If you believe your child is capable of keeping up with the group, no problem. AND if this is a bike ride they MUST wear a helmet. Questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
We add parking details to the Event descriptions.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
If the temperature is above 80 or it very clearly says "No Dogs" then please don't bring your dog. We LOVE dogs and only make this rule if we feel there could be a safety concern (for the dogs of course:).
BIKE: If it is a bike ride: Bring a helmet or borrow one from us. Helmets are the single most important piece of gear you can have on a bike ride. Anyway, any time you are wearing a helmet you must be having fun!
Bring water. Frequently our events are in the woods or out of the way. Water is important.
HIKE: If it is a hiking event wear comfortable shoes. Athletic shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, just be sure your feet will be happy.
SOCIAL: If it is a social event? Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in. We are an eclectic mix of people with all types of interests and jobs. People will come straight from work in a suit or jeans, straight from running or working out, and some of us even come cleaned up straight from the shower! (and everything in between)
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Can I update my registration information?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Printed ticket or download the EventBright app and bring it on your phone.
What is the refund policy?
Refunds up until 48 hours before. Or, better yet, get some goodwill by sharing your ticket with a friend. They will love you even more after all the fun they had at the BCO event!
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Yes - see love & friendship above!
