Held on the periphery of downtown along the sprawling Buffalo Bayou, FPSF’s unique blend of cityscape and natural environment create the perfect setting for it’s melange of visual and interactive arts, delicious local fare, and 6 stages of music to be enjoyed by it’s enthusiastic and diverse crowd. FPSF 2015 will be held June 6th and 7th.
With downtown’s skyline as its back drop, Houston’s premier greenbelt winds from Shepherd Drive on the west to Bagby Street on the East End. Eleanor Tinsley Park, located within this greenway (Taft-Sabine), is the site of major Houston festivals and events, including the city’s Fourth of July Fireworks.
