East End Houston is a vibrant international business district rich in diversity and bursting with residential and commercial development. Strategically located between the Port of Houston, downtown Houston and Hobby Airport; we are blossoming with a dedicated professional and semi-skilled workforce, the community is a magnet for growth! With over 250 available acres of land to build, including the recently purchased KBR property along the Buffalo Bayou, East End Houston is at a tipping point for transition.

MEDIA ALERT

Announcing the 2021 East End Street: Live from Home
A Latin Music Fest with a Fused Chicano Soul, Hip-hop, Rap, Jazz and Aztec Folklore

 

The East End Improvement Corporation (501c3) and the East End Houston Cultural District proudly announces the 10th Anniversary of East End Street Fest in its eclectic online edition “Live from Home.” The fusion party will take place on Saturday, October 16 and it will be FREE.

The three-hour virtual fest will include a mix of Latino artists such as headliner Los Nahuatlatos with a “Xicano roots fusion” from San Antonio that mixes Conjunto, Chicano Soul, Cumbia with Ska, Reggae, and Hip-hop. Their unique name derives from the body of language spoken by the various tribes of the “Aztecas.” Nico will present his Latin Folk, and Nova Trova influences to the EESF stage to make the audience vibe and dance. His lyrics are thoughtful and expressive. Also, Danza Azteca will take viewers to a celebration of movement, art, and life with intricate folklore dance performances. Last, Astro Inn (formerly Handsomebeast) will perform their new Funk Pop with Hip Hop and Soul sound.

Since 2012, Hispanic music, food, art, and culture have been celebrated at the annual East End Street Fest. Thousands have gathered with friends and family to dance and enjoy the rhythms of this historic community. This year the safest place to gather is at home, restaurant, or a bar; therefore, the East End Improvement Corp. will be broadcasting a top-of-the-line virtual festival through the East End Street Fest website and social platforms to all Houstonians. Simultaneously, the East End Street Fest: Live from Home will air on Houston Media Source and HTV’s public access television channels.

Veronica Chapa Gorczynski, President of the East End District, said, “In 2021, the East End Street Fest will be celebrating ten years of bringing the community together and showcasing the arts and culture of this historic corner of Houston. This year, we invite everyone to join us from the comfort and safety of their homes and enjoy the eclectic performances of our friends and neighbors.”

The full lineup and times of stage performances are available on the event website, www.eastendstreetfest.com.
