Brand-New "BestFest" Moves Into Midtown September 24 & 25

Rocks Off is a big believer in off-year anniversaries, so we are quite pleased to announce a brand-new festival to celebrate the 23rd edition of the Houston Press' Best of Houston® issue, which hits newsstands September 29.

The Houston Press Best of Houston® BestFest, "BestFest" for short, brings two days of music, food and art to the "superblock" in Midtown - the fenced-in patch of ground on Main between Stewart Cadillac and HCC headquarters. It's right by the McGowen light rail stop.

From noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, September 24, and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday, September 25, national, regional and local artists will perform on two stages spread out over the superblock. Rocks Off expects to begin announcing who those artists are very soon, perhaps as soon as this week.

Also, 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. 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.
