The History of the Free Press Summer Fest

The Free Press Summer Fest is an annual two-day music festival in Houston, Texas’ Buffalo Bayou’s Eleanor Tinsley Park. More than 40 bands (nationally known acts as well as local music talent) on three stages are featured.

This festival was started to emphasize local musical performers, visual arts, and artists.
