Frontier Fiesta 2020 has been canceled.

Every spring semester, part of campus is transformed into a fully functional town called Fiesta City. The hard work is for a good cause, as the annual student-led Frontier Fiesta promotes education, community and scholarships, while also showcasing the many talents of the UH student body.

Scheduled to take place March 19-21, the festival will include live concerts, variety shows by student organizations, carnival booths, a barbecue cookoff and more.

Impact on Parking

Frontier Fiesta will affect parking on campus, including Zone F (lot 12A) and faculty-staff ungated lot 12B. These areas will be blocked off in phases to allow for the construction of Fiesta City.

Individuals parked in the affected surface lots should plan to have their vehicles moved by 11:59 p.m. the night before each phase begins, otherwise they will be relocated to another lot on campus at the owner's expense.

The week of March 9-13 is spring break, and so anyone with a valid UH parking permit, including faculty and staff who park in lot 12B, can park in any of the ungated lots on campus (both student and faculty-staff) through Sunday, March 15. Just remember not to park in restricted spaces, such as reserved, disabled, metered and 20-minute unloading.

Zones D, E and F

Please note that all of Zone F (lot 12A) will be blocked off March 16-22. Zone F permit holders will be able to park in Zone D and Zone E. In addition, Zone D and E permit holders will be allowed to park in both Zone D and Zone E during this time.

In addition, a portion of the Stadium Garage will be used on all three days of Frontier Fiesta. Students, faculty and staff who have a valid permit for the garage will still be allowed to access it, but should plan for increased traffic.

All impacted parking lots will reopen by Monday, March 23.
