Tomball German Heritage Festival
Put on your lederhosen and head to Tomball’s Market Street for this celebration of the heritage of the original German immigrants who settled the area in the 1840s.

Honky-Tonk Chili Challenge

Tomball’s version includes plenty of live music, delicious food, vendors, activities for the kids, and thousands of pounds of crawfish!

Come out to Tomball on July 4th for the signature flag-waving celebration as the city stages the biggest Independence Day event in northwest Harris County.
