Upcoming Texas Music Festivals & Events

Because of the situation that we all are facing, certainly many, if not all, of the events in our calendar are now cancelled. We will try to update the calendar after a few weeks when we have a better idea of the state of our country's health and how we must proceed with our interactions.

Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you at future events!

Here are some select upcoming fun Texas events near you - carnivals, festivals, music concerts, rodeos, chili cookoffs, and more - to get on your calendar. These Texas festivals and events are typically multi-day events with lots of fun things to keep you and the kids entertained. Keep coming back because on a weekly and monthly basis we add new Texas carnivals, rodeos, music festivals, and more to the calendar.

Have fun! If you know of an event that you think we should add to the Texas Events Calendar or if you are planning an event you would like to have included on the upcoming events calendar, send us an email.
