ABOUT THE EAST END STREET FEST
In 2013, the East End Street Fest moved to its permanent location, Navigation Esplanade, between S. Jensen Dr. and Delano St. with two music stages, sellout vendor booth spaces, diverse food, family activities and interactive fun for all ages with nearly 10,000 attendees from all areas of Houston. The East End Street Fest was a huge success!
On 2014 and 2015, we brought you a new and one-of-a-kind entertainment with two music stages and more than 10 bands including Latin Grammy Award-winner David Lee Garza. Also, AFoot!, the Marching Band Extravaganza, the Taco Eating Contest and the crowning of the East End Rey and Reina.
Building on the accomplishment and buzz the Fest received in 2013, 2014 and 2015, the 2016 East End Street Fest is on target to bring thousands of attendees and promises to bring again diverse fun & food while celebrating the East End’s heritage with art, music, education & culture! Please check our Music Lineup for 2016.
On 2016 the East End Street Fest will be creating panels and workshops heavily focused on the future of the entertainment industry and how to further careers in the arts.
During the festival timeframe, various activities will take place at the Talento Bilingue Houston. Programming will be varied and multi-generational relevant to reach students interested in pursuing a career in the entertainment industry or the arts.
