After it was canceled last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Willow Waterhole Greenway Conservancy’s annual MusicFest is making its return for its eighth year.

On Oct. 30, the Willow Waterhole Greenway will play host to a one-day festival featuring live music and Halloween-themed activities, the conservancy announced Sept. 19.

From 11 a.m.-7 p.m., patrons can enjoy the free festival, which will include a lineup of 57 musicians, student-school musicians, a Haunted House Maze, Trunk or Treat and Mortals & Dogs costume contests.

“We are very excited to be able to bring our unique, family-friendly event back to music fans of Houston,” said Howard Sacks, MusicFest 2021 chairman, in a news release. “Our diverse lineup of professional bands, great food and fun Halloween events will offer something special for everyone in this naturally beautiful green space.”

The festival will be held at the Willow Waterhole Greenway’s Schwartz Gazebo, 5300 Dryad Drive, behind Westbury High School. The festival is produced by the Willow Waterhole Greenway Conservancy, a nonprofit community-based steward for the Willow Waterhole Greenway.

The greenway is part of Project Brays, a comprehensive program that combines expertise from the Harris County Flood Control District and the Army Corps of Engineers. That project combines flood control through a $75 million series of detention lakes and the development of the 291-acre park into a green space.
