The 20th anniversary of Palomino Fest will take place at the Uvalde County Fairplex during Labor Day weekend. The three-day festival began in 1996, spearheaded by hometown band Los Palominos, which won a Grammy in 1999.
 
Over the years, the success of the Palomino Fest has culminated into a celebration of southwest Texas heritage. The festival offers live music concerts, a professional rodeo event, a parade, and a carnival. Each year, over 20,000 people – locals and visitors – traverse the gates to take advantage of the long weekend.
 
TICKETS
Pre-sale weekend mega passes are available at Oasis Outback or online for $15. Mega passes will be good for all three days.
