Houston International Festival includes green initiative.

By: Annie Brunson

In April 2012 the Houston International Festival (HIF) will incorporate something called the "Village Green" which is to be a section of upper Sam Houston Park that will showcase locally produced goods and concessions plus recycled crafts.
Often known as IFest, this season the culture of Argentina will be featured. The event will run through the weekends of April 21-22 and April 28-29, from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and will take place in the streets, parks, and plazas around Houston's City Hall. (800 Bagby Street, Houston, TX 77056)
This is among Houston's most popular outdoor festivals. It attracts art and music enthusiasts enthusiastic about cultural programs, visual arts exhibits, and live music. This year's green initiative will showcase Houston's eco-friendly community and artists, while supporting sustainable living. Each weekend there will be about ten Green Artists and organizations with exhibits. They will be located in the "Green Village".
Even though the focus will probably be about the culture of Argentina, IFest will highlight over 150 international markets. Displays and events will cover fine arts, fine crafts, Afro-Carribean and Asian areas, and Latin and French quarters. All of the international markets will be open both weekends. The events will also include live demonstrations by artisans and daily fashion shows.
