Your Chance to Become a Star Courtesy of Central Green

The public gets to vote for contestants on the WFDD Central Green Facebook page and enjoy a night of free entertainment September 30, 2017.  Central Green is located at the LaCenterra shopping center on Cinco Ranch Boulevard at the Grand Parkway.

The contest has two categories, ages 7 through 17, and 18 and older. Anyone without a recording contract may enter.

Willow Fork Drainage District Central Green has been the site of six CD release parties and launched the professional careers of six Katy ISD students.

“It’s important to introduce these talented performers to the public and give them an opportunity to launch their careers,” said Parks General Manager, Yvonne Arceneaux. “This is a break many people dream of and never get the chance to see if they could have made it in the entertainment business,” she added.

“We opened the Talent Showcase to two age groups so the stay home mom who still dreams of taking the stage, or the oil worker who always wondered if he could have made it, and the child or teenager full of ambition hoping for a shot at stardom can finally showcase their talents,” Arceneaux said.

How the contest works:

  • Performers upload their videos via You Tube, Vine or Instagram to the Central Green facebook contest page:
