The Free Press Summer Festival was an annual two-day music festival held in Houston, Texas at Buffalo Bayou’s Eleanor Tinsley Park. Other activities include fireworks, interactive art installations, a paint slide, music workshops, a 30-foot water wall and an off-site after party. The festival was started to emphasize local musical performers, visual arts and artists. A recycling program, carbon offset credits and a partnership with the Texas Campaign for the Environment are implemented to help this festival become a greener experience. The festival is organized by Free Press Houston, a local independent newspaper and Pegstar. Presents, a local concert promotion company. This change comes in precisely on the ninth anniversary of the FPSF.
