On Sunday, April 24, the Department of Wonder will open its doors in Sugar Land. The name is a bit vague, but the space should be a huge draw in the area. Department of Wonder is a 9,000 square foot space that was designed for what is described as an “immersive, cinematic experience” of mixed reality. While it opens during a few milder days in April, the Department of Wonder is set to offer an escape from the worst of summer with its mix of theatre, screenings and puzzles, a hybrid of escape rooms and reality. virtual created by writers and designers for the cinema. and TV.

To mark the opening of the Department of Wonder, Sugar Land Town Square on April 23 will feature Kaleidoscope, a street festival that will celebrate the space’s recent updates nearly two decades after its original development. Dallas-based symphonic and choral rock band The Polyphonic Spree will perform in a three-hour celebration that includes foot and drink and art displays. The show will be the Spree’s first in Houston in five years.


Foodies will find plenty to love with a few pop-up restaurant appearances – BB Italia Bistro & Bar, German Donor Kebab and Williams Barbecue & Blues. Plus, you can enjoy drinks and bites from Town Square favorites including Japaneiro’s, Jupiter, Kilwin’s, State Fare and Sweet Boutique – which will be opening in Sugar Land Town Square.

Matt Ragan of Rebees, a Dallas-based real estate company that worked on the project calls Kaleidoscope, “a celebration for the Sugar Land community.”
