    Frontier Fiest 

    In the 1940s 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!
