Transcript Frontier Fiesta Si Tradition far Everyone At a school that is not particularly known for its traditions, there is one tradition with which, without question, nearly everybody in the University of Houston community, if not the entire greater Houston area, is somewhat familiar. This is Frontier Fiesta. To alumni, the words "Frontier Fiesta" are associated with an annual weekend outing. To the majority of UH students, the words have something to due with something they once read about in University recruitment materials. To members of Houston's elite Frontier FieStd a I cook off teams, the words ! mean another chance to compete best brisket. To the three day series of events, takes over a year of extensive planning. members of various student organizations, it means much more. Many student organizations put together variety shows consisting of song, dance, and humorous skits and compete against each other for best show. These shows are one of the main draws of Frontier Fiesta. The general rule has traditionally been that fraternities will generally pair up with sororities and put together their shows, however, all student organizations are welcome to participate. The competition has become so important to the Greek organizations, that the variety show competition of Frontier Fiesta has come to be referred to informally as the Super Bowl of all Greek events, leaving the winners with bragging rights for an entire year. All things said, there are generally between 7 and 10 variety shows per year.
