Sprawling across two city blocks, the Houston Roxx street festival celebrates the city’s art, music, and food on Saturday May 4th, from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday May 5th, from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Visitors can chow down on eats from vendors while enjoying live musical performances, including a closing show by Grammy-winning band Grupo Fantasma.<p>
The Houston Roxx Street Festival is like a good old-fashioned block party. It just happens to include enough people to populate a U2 concert—about 15 thousand revelers. The inaugural Houston Roxx street festival will transform the pavement surrounding Washington Avenue and Silver Street into a party platform for guests of all ages—a party platform to celebrate Houston's Cultural Arts District. In colorful tents, vendors dish out hot eats, complemented by adult beverages for those of age. In a 21 and up fun zone, meanwhile, the festival's organizers set up beloved block party games such as corn hole, giant Jenga, and beer pong. They also fill their two-day run with non-stop musical performances, with Austin’s Henry and the Invisibles kicking off festivities on Saturday, May 4th, and the Grammy-nominated Grupo Fantasma closing out the Cinco de Mayo festivities the next day.
Houston Roxx doesn’t skimp on entertainments for younger visitors, either. The kids’ zone hosts youth-friendly games, interactive art projects, and musical performances geared toward a younger crowd. Those performances include the Chick-fil-A Moo Cow Band and musical chairs, which might sing if you imagine hard enough.
