Summer’s about to get sizzling in Houston, as the city prepares for the third annual Fajita Fest on Saturday, July 28 at Houston Community College’s west loop campus with an exciting lineup of things to see, do and taste including the massively popular jalapeno eating contest.
This year, the Houston Fajita Festival will feature over a dozen food vendors and brings in some of the best grillmasters in Texas to serve up their most mouth-watering Mexican dishes. The Festival also offers several ways for Tex-Mex enthusiasts to indulge in the experience with fan favorites like the taco and watermelon eating contests. Foodies, families, and friends are all encouraged to come out and enjoy a host of endless entertainment, including the kids’ playground, two DJs, wrestling matches, live art walls, a photo area, and so much more! As the Houston Fajita Festival continues to grow in size and quality, the overall experience for attendees is top priority for festival organizer, Andrew Harris of Grandma’s Boys Lemonade.
“We are excited that the festival is free this year,” Harris explained. “And the bigger location at HCC means we can provide even more activities for the community to play, eat, and create new memories.”
Grandma’s Boys Lemonade is committed to leaving a positive impact on the community and has partnered with The Texas Lions Camp as the Festival’s official beneficiary, receiving a portion of revenue from the event. The Texas Lions Camp is a residential camping facility for children with physical disabilities, type 1 diabetes, and cancer. The 2018 Houston Fajita Fest is sponsored by Bullritos, Grandma’s Boys Lemonade, O’Reilly Auto Parts, Yelp, and EverFest. Media partners for the Festival include; The Greensheet, Telemundo, the Houston CW39, NGEN Radio, and Liberman Broadcasting.
