This Is Kingwood Festival is the brainchild of Michael Kelley, publisher of The Kingwood Monthly and The Atascocita Monthly, a local entertainment-oriented newspaper delivered to over 70% of the residents in the Kingwood, Atascocita and Humble area. Michael is also responsible for the revival and re-branding of Humble Trade Days into Lake Houston Trade Days, set to begin at the Humble Civic Arena in March, as well as having had a hand in last year’s extremely successful Curefest, which raised over $150,000 for MD Anderson brain Cancer research. Under a special agreement with the City of Humble he is also responsible for the entertainment stages and special sponsorship opportunities for Humble’s “Good Oil Days”.
“Since the inception of The Kingwood Monthly publication, it has been one of my long term goals to include a yearly community festival as part of my overall business plan. Kingwood and it’s people have been so good to me over the past ten years that I have lived here, that I felt it only right to try to give something back.” Michael says of his vision for the event.
Proceeds from This Is Kingwood Festival will be divided up between three local charitable organizations, including Will’s Kids, Addi’s Faith Foundation, and the Village Learning and Achievement Center. The event will be Free to attend though there will be some ticket items, a silent auction, a raffle, sponsorships opportunities and possibly a 5K Run/Walk to the event from a starting point still to be determined, which will all contribute to these very worthy organizations.
