Sugar Land’s most anticipated annual events are on the horizon! All of the events are fun, festive, located within the City at Sugar Land and specifically designed with the Sugar Land community in mind.
First up is Bikes and Brews on Thursday, Sept. 8, from 5:30-8:30 p.m., at Brazos River Park, 18427 Southwest Freeway. Enjoy a night of socializing with bicycling and mountain bike enthusiasts, delicious food from food trucks and beer sponsored by Saint Arnold Brewery!

Sugar Land Town Square has the perfect fall backdrop setting for the new Sugar Land Fall Fest set for Saturday, Sept. 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Shop at the onsite artisans market, which includes a little bit of everything from handmade pottery and ceramics to house plants. The Fall Fest wouldn’t be complete without a pumpkin patch sponsored by H-E-B. Available pumpkins will be given away at the end of the event between 2-3 p.m. There will also be pumpkin carving, an inflatable corn maze, autumn-themed photo stations, fall treats to enjoy and beer sponsored by Saint Arnold Brewing.
