EnergyFest 2015 Schedule Adds “Kidical Mass” Family Bike Ride, Bike Valet & Mockingbirds Party Band

Enjoy diverse music, food trucks, kids’ fun and merchants’ booths at 3rd annual EnergyFest, sponsored by Audi West Houston

Part of a larger vision to invent new uses for the Addicks Park and Ride, EnergyFest 2015 will transform an empty parking lot at noon Saturday, April 4, into a lively Energy Corridor festival featuring bands, food trucks, merchant booths, a bevy of kids’ activities and the return of KHOU-11’s Lily Jang as emcee.

Admission is free.

Jangly Austin country guitars, energetic dance music, alt-rock pop and even resonant cellos will take the stage at EnergyFest 2015, sponsored by Audi West Houston, 11850 Katy Freeway.

Acclaimed Austin artist Weldon Henson – a honky-tonk master with a rock and roll attitude – original songstress Kalila, ECHO (Energy Corridor of Houston Orchestra) and a soon-to-be-announced dance party band will make for an eclectic live music mix from noon – 5 p.m.

Festivalgoers can enjoy food trucks and Energy Corridor merchants booths, interspersed with the latest automobiles on display from Audi West Houston.

Families and children can take on a video gaming truck, carnival games, a towering rock climbing wall, fun moonwalk obstacle course and gravity-defying cable jump.

“Thanks to our lead sponsor Audi West Houston, we’re going to make the third annual EnergyFest our biggest yet,” explains Rachael Weaver, community relations coordinator for festival host The Energy Corridor District. “It’s going to be fun turning the Addicks Park and Ride into a bustling festival.”

The District launched EnergyFest as a way to showcase the diverse lifestyle of The Energy Corridor District, says Weaver. “Our past two festivals have introduced a lot of Houstonians to The Energy Corridor.”

Your company, service or organization can join the fun and become an integral part of EnergyFest 2015 with a booth or sponsorship. Contact Rachael Weaver, rweaver@energycorridor.org, or download a sponsor application online by visiting houstonenergyfest.com.

Start your spring off with a party and join The Energy Corridor District for EnergyFest 2015, noon – 5 p.m. Saturday, April 4, at the Addicks Park and Ride, 14230 Katy Freeway.
