In the 1940’s an incredible event began at the University of Houston. Students, campus organizations, and community businesses gathered their expertise and talents to build an event that attracted as many as 100,000 people to the UH campus.
Over seventy years after the festival began, the University of Houston continues to invite the community to join in the celebration. Frontier Fiesta showcases everything that makes the University of Houston important to Texans — talented and diverse students, dedicated, world-renowned faculty, and support for higher education in Texas. Last year’s Frontier Fiesta attracted roughly 25,000 people, and this year promises continued growth and excitement!
Frontier Fiesta 2021 will be held March 25th-27th at the University of Houston in lots 12A and 12B near TDECU Stadium. Events include live music, Broadway-style variety shows, carnival booths and rides, a Family Fun Day, a cook-off, and a scholarship competition. This year we plan to offer scholarships to University of Houston current students, as well as incoming freshmen for Fall 2021.
Each scholarship is a $1000 one-time award. Scholarship recipients will be notified via email. Recipients will receive the scholarship pending course registration for Fall 2021.
