The World Series :: Watch Parties, Kids Activities, & More!


Right here. Right now. We are earning history, y’all. And there is no better time than now to get the family together to celebrate! Of course, in a perfect world we would all be cheering on our beloved Houston Astros in the World Series from the Diamond Club, amiright? But since that’s not the case for most of us, there are lots of other options for enjoying the World Series all around Houston … even from the comfort of your very own couch!  Check out our ideas below…

Attend a Minute Maid Watch Party

For every away game, you can cheer on the Astros with Postseason Watch Parties at Minute Maid Park! Each away game will be shown on the videoboard in the stadium and out on the Plaza on Crawford Street. As a heads up, you must claim a FREE admissions voucher in order to attend the event and you will have to pay for parking though. But once you get there, you can enjoy live music, food trucks, face painters, inflatables, photo booths, bar games, and access to the team store.

  • Game 1 :: Tuesday, October 24th starting at 5pm
  • Game 2 :: Wednesday, October 25th starting at 5pm
  • *Game 6 :: Tuesday, October 31st starting at 5pm
  • *Game 7 :: Wednesday, November 1st starting at 5pm
    *Denotes games if necessary

As a side note, there will also be street festivals during each of the home games, but you must have a game ticket to take part in those.
