The Houston Press Best of Houston® BestFest Is Coming
We've all been busy putting together our annual Best of Houston® issue, even though it doesn't come out until September.
This year we're not just celebrating the city in print and online -- we're putting on a festival.
The Houston Press Best of Houston® BestFest is set for September 24 and 25, in Midtown's "Superblock," the fenced-in empty lot near the McGowen light rail stop.
National, regional and local artists will perform on two stages -- announcements to come soon -- and, as our Chris Gray puts it, "several past Best of Houston® food winners will be serving up their award-winning wares, and local artists' collectives will be along to ply everything from face-painting to graffiti. There will be beer."
Tickets are $25 for a general-admission weekend pass, and should go on sale soon. Watch Rocks Off and houstonpress.com for further details. The Houston Press Best of Houston® BestFest is brought to you by the Houston Press, J. A. C.! Entertainment, Dos Equis, Camden Apartments, the Midtown Management District and 2-Day Postcards.
